Robber Fly Wannabe
Asilinae deceiveria

almost a robber fly
From a distance I thought that this could be the Robber Fly of all Robber Flies so I quickly hopped out of my car,
ignoring the swarms of biting midges, to take this beautiful insect's picture.  Upon arriving at the spot, I knew
 immediately (yes I did, of course I did; okay, maybe not) that this was no insect, but it was so interesting that I
 just had to take the photo.  It has everything--a head, legs, thorax, abdomen, wings, sense of humor...
Anyway, just had to share this jewel.  © Carol Davis, 6-15-2010
