Lovely lichen and a funny fly!

I love the lichen on the fallen trees in the ancient oak wood at Dalkeith Country Park





and there's a wonderful fly in that last picture, with irridescent wings and bulbous eyes, I've cropped the photo below so you can get a better view. If anyone has any idea what species of fly it is, feel free to let me know in the comments:

Juliet = if you send that photo to Donegal Wildlife on my side bar, I am sure he will identify it for you.
