Robberfly laying eggs (with a parasite attached to it)
-------------------------------------------------------
The Asilidae are the robber fly family, also called assassin flies. They are powerfully built, bristly flies with a short, stout proboscis enclosing the sharp, sucking hypopharynx.
The name "robber flies" reflects their notoriously aggressive predatory habits; they feed mainly or exclusively on other insects and as a rule they wait in ambush and catch their prey in flight.

Hello Arjun,
Exceptional colors and details. Amazing quality of this macro.
Marius.

Hello Arjun,
you posted a robber fly too! Yours is of course much better than mine. It is very detailed and sharp. You can count the hairs on it's body.
Thanks for showing.
Kind regards,
Roland
