ID for, I think, tachnid fly?

Hi, I photographed two small flies feeding on the flowers of an umbellfer close to water this weekend (Sept 18th). I think they are tachnid flies, but I'm not sure, and would love to know the speicies.

 

I have many pictures, so if these fail tot show any key features, I can post more.

 

Many thanks,
