[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Finally, I encountered this Robberfly with a meal. This process begins with by injecting a fluid into its prey that liquefies the internal parts of the insect so it is easily sucked out. Image was taken using 2X teleconverter and 10mm extension tube to have a better view.

Well done and TFS.
