    Default The stalker of the robber

    ID: Robberfly with bee catch, and a fly(id appreciated, moving around on its back)

    While attempting to capture the hyper fast robberflies, most of them just disappeared in the drying up scene of the trail. After a brief time though, came across this beauty that had freshly caught the tiny bee that was feeding on the dew drenched flowers(few yellow coloured pollens can be seen on the bee). Though this one too kept me on my toes, by flying off from one leaf to other grass blade, eventually it decided to take perch on this grass blade and rather preferred to squeeze and enjoy the fresh catch. While framing this scene, a tiny fly decided to explore the robberfly, probably enjoying the joyride, may be a rare opportunity for it, and kept on traversing the abdomen, from one side to the other, may be on a lookout to enjoy scavenging from the catch.

    EXIF:

    F/13

    Quite rare sighting. Shows how the hierarchy system works in nature. Good details. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely catch. Great that you sighted it. In the macro world things keep on happening. We just need to have the time to search for those. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
