This fly found its way inside the office where I work.

I believe it's Ornithomya, is it?

Thanks very much!
A lot of pigeons visit the building, so that makes perfect sense.
Do you want any of these photos for the gallery?

Yes, please, and would be great if you could collect some.
This species is still lacking in my collection.
