Hola Sra. Ulla.
Great moment in this photo. I guess this is a truly Nature way of living, someone has to die for others to live.
For sure Mr. Ivan can ID this Robber fly. He is an expert.
Saludos. And it so nice for me to be here again, after a short "Vacation"

Ciao Ulla. Great PO to show the interesting dramatic situation. Magnifcient capture. Maybe too tender sharp.

congratulations on this first on TN; a superb macro shot of this Robber Fly with its prey, fine detail and marvellous natural colours, a very nice composition and WS too.

A fantastic Robberfly. You show it off with great style - never realized a fly was so intricate. Colors, details and textures are excellent. I have never seen an insect as well defined as this. Great Job.
Heavens! what a "jumbo" robber fly! ... Your "laziness" is giving excellent results :) beacause you have been shooting very well this predatory action with the 100mm focal length!... I have also seen the WS and I have to say that the POV from above, has impressed me even more!
TFS, regards, Jesús

Love these shots of robbers with prey Ulla, it's a great catch..
Times two of course.
Quite different than the Giant Promachus robber I see here in Texas most of the time, I like its shaggy "tail" ;-)

After a long trip including the Middle East countries i could find a pretext to visit TN! Hope you and Ivan had good time during my absence.
BTW this is very impressive close-up. This really speaks for itself, so natural and perfect.
The colours and sharpness are wonderful.
TFS and have a nice day!

This is really impressive specie of robber fly! I've never seen this one. Looks great. Nice to see it not in grass but on wood - all details are well visible, good moment during dinner, I also like frontal POV in workshop.

I always considered your technical, photographic know-how very good, and now I find this image, which is REALLY PERFECT!
The multitude of details is actually incredible, have never seen before the bit of fluff at the anus of an insect!
Your Swedish, clean/clear air gives your image a truly crisp sharpness - and despite without a flash - even the victim is detailed and the colours luminous.
You even got the animal's eye contact, and I like very much the angle / view from slightly below.
I add this perfection to my favorites, thank you

I missed this interesting shot and it's even a first!It seems to be a quite long Robber Fly and it has amazing white coloration for a Robber Fly. Hungry it was too! Poor little beetle. I have seen big ones like this too in Valais, but not sure that it is the same species.
Thanks a lot and kind regards
