[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello everyone
Today I share with you a couple of very peculiar Asilids that I had the opportunity to find in a high mountain of the province of Granada.
I have only seen them this time, so they are not very abundant in this area.
His name is Eriopogon laniger. They are excellent hunters of other insects.

I hope to see them again.
