On Dec 2012 in Anstead Forest, we saw this flesh fly following a Potter Wasp. When the wasp flied, it flied. When the wasp rested on ground, the fly rested on ground. The fly was always watching the wasp at about half a meter away.

From reference information, this flesh fly lays egg in the nest of these wasps. The larvae eat the food intended for the wasp larvae .
