I believe this to be a Green-Bottle Fly but I'm not totally sure. A second attempt at macro. I hope you like it. Many thanks for all you kind wishes and my hands are almost back to normal size, just the infection and blister to sort out now. I've just been trying to take a few pics in the garden today. the Blue Tits are almost ready to fledge. I would bet anything they will, whilst I'm at work.

Looks much better large. Thanks for looking.

Many thanks for the C&C's on my uploads, they are all very much appreciated.

Steve.

Superb shot Steve

Certainly is a Green Bottle - I've got shots of 4 or 5 of these - all diffrent - so hard to pin down the exact species.

Best regards - Steve T
