Hi – it’s me again. Can you tell me what type flies these are?

Unknown Mating Flies

Hi Anna,
They remind us a bit of Big Headed Flies in the family Pipunculidae (see BugGuide) though we have a sneaky suspicion that they are really Flower Flies in the family Syrphidae.  This will take us a bit of research, and we may request assistance from Eric Eaton.
