Robber Fly - A Portrait
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The robber flies are known for their predatory behaviour.|
Robber flies generally establish a perching zone in which to locate potential prey. Perching height varies by species, but generally occurs in open, sunny locations.
The short, strong proboscis is used to stab and inject victims with saliva containing neurotoxic and proteolytic enzymes which paralyze and digest the insides; the fly then sucks the liquefied meal through the proboscis. The robber fly soon has access to a liquid meal, which is generally consumed upon returning to a perched position. :-)

great macro shot with good details
super sharpness and beautiful colours and nice BG
i commend you on the detail in this image.wow tfs
Incredible sharpness obtained here. Details are seen with great clarity, especially the texture on the reddish eye and the spiky hairs on the thorax. A great macro, favourable composition and pretty colours. A well deserved 10/10 in my personal opinion. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Excellent capture, great sharpness and contrasts. Well done! Cheers,
