Some wildlife that i've come across in my garden and around the valley last couple of days

My garden

This tiny Eumerus hoverfly was buzzing around the flowers in the garden but very difficult to photograph as it was very mobile stopping only for seconds can't narrow it down to species has i couldn't get a close view of the hind femora.

Surprised to see this Tabanus horsefly turn up in the garden it was about 22mm in length and has a dark line that runs along the underside of the abdomen i'm not an expert on these as they are all very much alike but i've been informed that it is probably tabanus autumnalis even though they are normally found around coastal marshes.
