I'm not sure, and the Photos are not the best. In there were also a possible meaning Physophora alceae

The fly was ca. 4 mm small under a leaf of Topinambur on October 13. in Frankfurt /M - Central Germany.

Interesting are the red/orange eyes and also the first pair of black legs.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
