What kind of fly is this?

new fly?

I was using my 50 mm macro for another job when I saw this flower.  It is a great lens for flowers but hard to get close enough to very small insects.  I did notice something landing on the flower as I took the picture.  It was the flower I was taking a picture of.

The wing veins do not match any hover fly group that I have been able to find.

I don't really know the name of the flower.  If anyone can tell me that,  it would help.
