    Harvestman - Opiliones - both harvestmen and spiders are arachnids, though the two orders are not otherwise closely related.

    Nicely varied set Geoff. I particularly like the flies and the first of the spiders.

    Is the first fly a Tachinid perhaps? Is the second fly a St Mark's fly?

    Thanks all, to be honest I'm not so sure with the flies/hoverflies, but I have seen that first one with the strips quite often, so I've probably identified before, not so sure about the all black fly as it's the first time I think I've seen one.

    Certainly looks like a St Mark's fly with those long legs - did they dangle limply when it flew?

    Smashing set of pics. The green beetles - a small male and the larger female, are green dock beetles, Gastrophysa viridula, I think

    Thanks Steve, I didn't notice the all black fly flying, but I have been seeing ones with long dangly legs flying about.

    Yep, St Mark's flies, look like all their legs have been broken when they fly!
