No idea what species. Nice colors.

    Great capture! These small long-legged flies, bright metallic green or coppery, belongs to the family Dolichopodidae.

    Thanks Gilles Gonthier, I've seen a few of the copper ones, but for some reason they are harder to photograph. Hopefully I can get one soon.
