Thanks Malcolm Wilton-Jones, you solve the "video prolem saving".
Yes ...logical, they suck their victims!!I notice you are having trouble with your videos and if you go to "Support" bottom of the screen, they can help you with that problem... : )
Look at the 5th pic.. there is a suction tool like a mosquitos suction. Maybe sucking is the way they eating their prey.
I read something about their spiny legs to catch prey in flight, but when it comes to eating their prey.. I have no idea...?!
How they can bite another insects without fang?
That is fantastic!! That is some Robberfly, congratulations on that great spotting.
