Robber flies are active predators. They usually rest on leaf or stick about one to two meters above ground, watching if there is any prey flies pass. Robber flies will capture prey by their powerful legs in mid air and consume while on the wings.

Superbly done, with good contrast and colours. It looks a pretty menacing fly! Great job.

Hi Leo,
A high quality macro shot. Focus, clarity, lighting and the sharpness is remarkable. Well done.

A well managed shot showing wonderful results, Leo. I am particularly impressed by the colour of the eye.
The picture is razor sharp with perfect details and colour tones.


Very nice picture. You took the right decision to use F16 to get the right depth. You must be feeling lucky that the fly did not move. Very good sharpness and color.


hi leo!

fine pov and perfect
well done!
