About those bulb flies...!

I've been following the posts about the bulb flies with horror since I  
have a lot of daffodils. There are all sorts of flies (critters having  
two wings and a pair of haltres) that hang around my garden: Hover  
flies, bee flies, soldier flies etc.; as well as all the members of  
the bee/wasp family.
My problem is that I have yet to see a picture of any these flies  
that's truly clear enough to help me identify them. Would someone  
please post a series of CLEAR AND UP CLOSE pictures of these flies  
from all sides COMPLETE WITH A RULER OR A COIN for size reference?
Is there a unique physical structure that a layperson could look for  
and be able to find that would help identify these bulb flies?
