Bluebottle Fly.

I don’t want to appear to be favouring greenbottles. 😉

The bluebottle is a similar species to the greenbottle fly, a close relative that can be distinguished by its bright green metallic colouring. Bluebottle fly adults feed on nectar, and in common with humans, the larvae feed on carcasses of dead animals. Adults are also pollinators to some flowers with strong odour.
