Sucker (Fly, Sarcophagidae or Muscidae?)

red-eyed fly with proboscis extended and reflection on yellow plastic
A fly does a little scavenging on an empty yellow cereal bowl.

Not sure what kind of fly this is. I only really got one good crack at it, as it did a quick strike on the inside of my cereal bowl. It was a tight space to get a macro shot with a reverse lens, but the yellow plastic made for some interesting lighting in combination with the flash. The reflection, in hindsight, is kind of oddly dull or muddy and ugly. Maybe a more ambitious me will exorcise it from all that is holy and yellow some day.
