Robber Fly

I love the robber flies…they are aggressive and impressive predators, and they tend to sit still from a perch and then launch themselves suddenly at insect prey. I finally got a decent photo of one, so I putting up three of basically the same pose (sorry?).

  1. People don’t talk about robber flies all that much but I’m fascinated by them when I see them on walks. Yes, they are amazing predators! They remind me of machines from some sort of fantasy/science fiction movie.
