Hi - I would appreciate confirmation or otherwise on the following photos all taken in the UK.
1/ Blue-Tailed Damselfly ?
2/ Green Bottle Fly - Lucilla sericala ?
3/ Mason Bee ?
4/ Small Tortoiseshell Caterpillar ?
5 / I believe a Leather Bug and possibly Dock Bug ?

Agree with 1 (looks like the female form violacea) & 3; the latter is Coreus marginatus , Dock Bug.
Think 3 is female Blue Mason Bee, Osmia caerulescens
4 is a Garden Tiger moth larva
I'll pass on the fly.

I agree with above dets.

the Lucilia probably is sericata, but not sure richardsi can be eliminated.

Taking into consideration the width of the frons I would say Lucilia sericata - If you use Irecord to log these sightings then the record would be confirmed, or otherwisem, by the National Recording Scheme organiser
