hello

"The short, strong proboscis (of the robber-fly) 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."
i assume that this is what it was doing while i was taking the shot...actually i took numerous shots and the robber fly stood motionless for long time no matter how close my camera was...
