Robberfly and prey.

Robberflies most oftenly hit the prey close to
head to quickly paralize them. This one was probably
a mistake.

Hello Paulo,
Excellent work! Robberfly is small but it's really excellent work to see the way you were able to capture such tiny prey!

Reminds me the book "Gulliver's Travels" by Jonathan Swift.
Thanks for sharing
