Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Unknown Fruit Fly(s?) on Thistle

Attached is an image of a fruit fly ovipositing on an unopened thistle blossom. Also is a side view of a fruit fly on a thistle, but I'm not positive if this is the same species as the first or not. So my questions are 1) are these the same species and 2) what species are they?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
