Not good images, I know, but this little fella was so small I wouldn't have seen him if it hadn't been for his pink eyes starity up at me Smile. I've no idea what he is, an ID would be much appreciated.
A million thanks for the interest shown in yesterday's montages, and especially to the 15 people who awarded their UA's, a record number for me, and one I surely can't better.

UPDATE: I think this little fella is urophora cardui, or picture winged fly

Looks like it might be a Drosophila and the wing pattern looks like Drosophila grimshawi, though that is an Hawaiian species. Maybe its a tourist!!!
