AWESOME SHOT!!! I love action shots. I narrowly missed getting a shot of a robber fly eating a thread-waisted wasp last week. I made the ultimate faux pas that any photographer can make I DID NOT HAVE MY CAMERA WITH ME! by the time I retrieved the camera and returned he had flown away!

Reminds me of an old employer who used to delight in sucking out the life-juices of the workers...

Nice shot of a hungry robber fly and a poor skipper. I think these types of captures need good luck.

Great shot! I have to say, when I think about the savagery of bug world, I'm glad to be human!
