Fly Mating Pair (four photos)
There were actually three Robber Flies in this drama at
Promontory Point. The other one
finally gave up and went over to sulk on the barbed
wire fence. © Carol Davis 8-20-2017
Sometimes you are the hanger and sometimes you are the
"hangee". In this
case, the female is the larger so the male is the
hangee. © Carol Davis 8-20-2017

Here is the one that was left out - a male, I presume. It
gazing off over the barren landscape until I
drove it crazy taking photos.
This is only the second time I have seen these black Robbers.
They are gorgeous,
fascinating creatures with voracious appetites.
You can see more
of them here
that we found near Eureka, Utah. © Carol Davis 8-20-2017
