  2. Hi Tim!
    Definitely a fly... And the spider is a jumper.
     
  3. Oddly enough, the fly is a Hover Fly (Merodon equestris - Narcissus bulb fly), although it looks very unlike most other (typical) hover flies.
    In Europe we have several species that look extremely like bees (or bumble bees), mostly of the genus Volucella.

    Cheers
