I just see your picture of a Robber fly. You wouldn't believe I shot almost the same picture than you of a almost similar fly on a rock, last sommer. I think flies are very interesting creatures. I believe that Peter Roos (batu) knows a lot about them.

Perfect exposure, sharpness and strong visual impact in this double photo. Lovely rock as you suspect :-)
TFS, José M.
PS. Good new portrait in your Intro page.

Main subject is well presented. Perhaps the wings are little bit to dark. The surface of the rock is also interesting here. Together with a great note rely good presentation.

I just love this interesting and lovely piece of marble rock of yours showing its structure very clear. Just a pity it has some dirt spot on it. Oh, sorry, I see it is a fly…a robber fly. Maybe I should have read your notes first. Fortunately both can go through as nature and you don’t have to be worried somebody might report a TOS violation.
I’m only joking with you my friend. Although the fly is a little on the small side it is still a fine capture with this top view. It shows the legs, head, and mouth parts very clear and although the wings might be a little on the dark side one can still form a clear picture of it and the body as well. It is clear that this fly is a hunter as those bristles on the legs indicates that once it grabbed hold of its prey it won’t be easy to escape again.
Good effort and TFS.

You found another Asilidae(Robber fly).
They are a tyrant in their field. :-)
You will see them to hunt other insects which has bigger body than them.

both the insect and the structures of the rock are cristal clear, and the subtle hues of brown and blue are fascinating, aestetically very pleasing. The picture is much more than just a portrait of a fly, it brings me in close touch with nature in a powerful and convincing way.
Thank you! My best regards,

This is almost as nasty as my snake! But you've captured it so well, it is small but very sharp and it stands out very nicely from the blueish rock. In sunlight it would probably have been less successful.
TFS and regards, Ulla
