Fly on a blade of grass

By barrywebb  
I spotted this small fly in my garden today, in a rough grassy area where there were a group of old rotting mushrooms growing. I've been surprised to see the mushrooms at this time of year but they had obviously attracted the flies, as there were others in the area and also one sitting on a mushroom. This one stayed long enough for me to lay on the ground and take a burst of shots hand held, which I then focus stacked. I've not been able to ID it as yet. I attempted to shoot the one on the mushroom but I scared it off whilst trying to gently move strands of grass that were in the way. You can't win them all!
