Soda through a straw will never seem the same again :-) The circle of life, it's not always pleasant but it's necessary. A great macro, I really like the soft green background, DOF is perfect, excellent detail and a grisly but informative note!

Great macro photo and an excellent capture of the moment. This is the real life cycle of nature - kill or be killed. Only with most of nature it is with no other motivation than for survival through the food source.
Great composition, nice strong colours, good DOF with excellent details, superb BG, and spot-on exposure.
Very well done and TFS.

An excellent macro on this Robber Fly and his victim. Comp. and framing look very good. The exposure also looks very good with the nice saturated colors and sharp detail. DOF control was perfect here.

Hello Monika, the Robber fly fascinates me. I seen them in Turkey last year and they just look so menacing. The fact that you caught him with prey really makes this rather special. Nice detail and compo. Well done.

Great action shot! Neurotoxic and proteolytic enzymes sounds very interesting :-) Robberflies are fantastic killing machines, I like to observe them during action. Very good photo with fine details, composition and mood. Far better than my boring butterflies ;-)
