on the roof

This is one of those lovely pink grass stems that are common around Hong Kong, and we have a few on the roof - yes, i am still in quarantine.

But I saw this tiny little chappy ... a little fly, with interesting wings.

According to iNatuarlist, my go to App for ID, this is a fly in the Tephritoidea superfamily of flies. This includes a lot of different families, like flutter flies, skippers, picture winged flies and what i thought it was, which is fruit fly. Let me know fly specialists.....thanks.

The above picture is full frame, already a true macro, difficult to get closer, and the next shot is a crop of the above image.
