Hello Joe,
an excellent shot of this robber. i have never seen and never heard of this creature. thanks for that.
with the great clarity and sharpness, indeed it is an exciting shot.
Superbs composition with nice blurred background.


Great image, Joe!
Very good composition with the Robberfly in sharp focus.
The details and colours too are excellent.
My belated welcome to you on TN.
All the best.

Hello again Joe!
Again a very interesting capture, this time a small and beautiful Asilidae fly. I like pose of this insect and colours of photo. Also depth of field and details and very good as for me.
I can not give you species name, but I think that this is a member of Leptogastrinae subfamily.
All the best from Lodz,
