1 1/2" long robber fly
Thanks Juan - it made a nice change to find one that didn't fly off before I could get close enough for the macros.
Thanks Jemma & Gilma!
Fantastic pictures of a Giant Robber fly, KarenL.
Thank you Karen, for sharing this cute monster with us.
Not especially. They predate on bees & butterflies so I usually see them around flowering plants.
Are they found around creek sides or ponds? Along with dragon flies?
Jemma, these species is almost dragonfly sized, but we do get even larger robber flies around here.
Almost as big as a Dragonfly?!
Thank you Alex!
Vow! Fantastic series Karen.
