The Fly with the green eyes is a type of Deer Fly. I HATE these flies, they fly around your head and nail you when you least expect it! This one is not feeding on a deer, but a horse. The smaller fly (maybe a Biting Stable Fly? Stomoxys calcitrans) is trying to get in on the blood-eating action. It often seems that flies are out to get us when we go outdoors and they are! The good news is that only female flies bite and only a few of those are the blood sucking type. Houseflies have lapping mouthtypes, they don't bite. So, it's not as bad as it may seem! :)
