I've seen quite a few of these smallish flies around at the moment. They measure around 7 - 8 mm. I'm having a lot of trouble even determining family level of this one, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Stratiomyidae? A few Rhagionidae have similar antennae.

While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.
