Dear Mr. T,
The dog days of summer are upon us and it is the perfect time to observe large predatory Robber Flies like your Red Footed Cannibalfly, which we are declaring the Bug of the Month for September 2022. The Red Footed Cannibalfly has been Bug of the Month twice before, in August 2010 and September 2013. Large Robber Flies are aerial predators that take prey on the wing, and they frequently prey upon large wasps and dragonflies.
