For several years, I have been disappointed at not finding this species. Today I found it at last, on the flowers of Jack by the Hedge aka Garlic Mustard, a typical crucifer. (The elongated seed pods often blocked the view).

It was a difficult session, with a light breeze moving the leaves and the sky darkening from thickening clouds. I used a smaller aperture than is my preference and had to raise the ISO to 1600.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/200 sec then 1/100 sec at f10 ISO 800, (first two) then 1/100 sec at f9 ISO 1600, hand-held.

These are not as sharp as I would like but show the fly’s characteristics. All are of females.

That's not a snout, that's a snoot!

Nice find and nice shots, it's certainly been busy in the pollen.

Thanks.

It was a bit too rushed. I hope to see them again today and get some better images, maybe including a male, weather permitting.

I found one towards the end of the morning on the following day. I took some shots, hoping to find more of the flies in the afternoon but I never saw one again.

This image is not very good but it gives another angle of view.
