Hello
That's my first picture of robberfly I've ever taken.
Robberflies belong to Diptera and the family Asilidae.
They are predators actively hunting for other insects and spiders.
They are very fast fliers and when hunting they sit in one place waiting and when seeing the prey almost jumping to caych it.
Thanks for stopping
Ania

Bardzo przyzwoite makro dokumentujace ciekawy element behawioru lowikow. Ostrosc i detal bardzo ok, zmienilbym natomiast ulozenie zdjecia - poziomy widok bylby moim zdaniem lepszy :)

Hi Ania,
very good action shot on this murderous fly! Excellent: the flies are in the shadow, very advantageous in the case of dark or reflective objects. Well done, Ania.
Best regards

Hallo Ania
Wow, this is 1st class photography! Such a pity you shared it such a long time ago and that it did not get the recognition it supposed to have. It is a great macro of the details of both the predator and the prey beautifully portrayed against the tree's trunk. Thanks for sharing at the time. Best regards.
Anna

Cześć Aniu,
bardzo fajne zdjęcie. Bardzo dobra ostrość i naturalne kolory. Jednym słowem super macro.
Czekam na jakieś nowe Twoje zdjecia.
Pozdrawiam
Maciek
