Unidentified small fly

I caught this small fly in the garden earlier this evening and thought I'd try a stack:

Though we lean upon the same balustrade, the colours of the mountain are different.

Came out well. Did those overlapping bristles render so well by themselves, or did you have to do some retouching?

...I had to retouch them, plus some smudgy haloes.
