Is this a robber fly?
July 6, 2010
I see these strange bugs in my friend’s garden all the time. I have pictures of one of them eating a moth. I have looked thru your pictures and believe this must be some kind of robber fly. They are very creepy looking.
You have submitted some images of Robber Flies feeding, but the image we have chosen to post appears to be of a pair of Robber Flies preparing to mate. We are uncertain of the species of Robber Fly you have photographed.
