Giant Robber Fly with White-tipped Abdomen
Genus Promachus
albifacies or nigrialbus species

robber fly
I have to admit I was a bit of a coward when it came to getting out of the car this day on Antelope
Island because the deer flies were horrendous. I had on some white arms sleeves hoping it would
the little buggers, but one got me real good right through the cloth (three days later and it's
still itching)
- kevlar sleeves coming up! I took the above photo from my
vehicle but I doubt
there were many deer fl
ies at my location because of this stealthy, white-tailed hunter.
