All belong to Platycheirus. The upper male is P. granditarsus, and the middle female seems to be the same species. The lowermost female is difficult, as the yellow abdominal markings are hardly visible. There are several species with such dark legs, so I do not dare a guess.
It is recommended to post the pictures of only one fly per thread. And the more pictures from different angles we have, the easier is the identification Wink.
Regards, Sundew

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
