Your letter to the bugman:  We found this bug on our windshield this afternoon. It took quite a ride with us. It did recover and fly away. We’r thought it looked kind of like a big horse fly, about the diameter of a 50 cent coin in length, except for the stripes and pointy abdomen.  Thank you for letting us know what it is!

Dear Rex and Elizabeth,
This large, predatory Robber Fly is commonly called a Red Footed Cannibalfly, and your request is the first submission we have received this year.  We typically post at least five images of Red Footed Cannibalflies each summer.
