Laphria flava
Family: Asiliidae

The robber fly unlike many other flies do not live on liquid food or scavenge. It is a voracious and efective predator, hunting for other insects (butterflies, beetles etc.). This one was taken in Biogradska Gora Primaeval Forest while waiting for a prey...

Swietna kompozycja i punkt widzenia. Bardzo nietypowa ale udana. Strasznie trudno jest zlapac takiego lowika w obiektyw, tobie udalo sie znakomicie.

Hello Michal!
Personal assessment of the photo: very good.
Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Thank you very much for sharing.
Have a good week!

Perhaps nor always it is easy to focus the entire insect, it tries to use more opening, at least f8, focuses better.

hey, you lookin at me. this is just a great shot with great detail and expression.
