Nylanderia flavipes and the Fly

Nylanderia flavipes is a commonly imported species of ant. They're reaking havoc with my raspberry patch and that's bad. But away from the raspberries they find other things to nibble at and so the flies. I'm not sure what the fly in question is here but I thought it was cute how it would sneak up gingerly to the food item and steal a bite now and then.
