I was at work and noticed this very odd looking insect. It appears to be some sort of fly though I haven’t the faintest idea what type. Forgive the low resolution photo, it was all my phone could muster.

Robber Fly

Hi Brian,
Your photo does not have enough detail for us to be able to determine a species, however, the silhouette alone allows us to identify this as a Robber Fly in the family Asilidae.  Robber Flies are very adept hunters.
