Robber Fly by RichardConstantinoff Robber Fly by RichardConstantinoff
Killer - Robber Fly

Only about 25mm !

:bulletred: Insects in the Diptera family Asilidae are commonly called robber flies
:bulletred: The short, strong proboscis is used to stab and inject victims with saliva containing neurotoxic and proteolytic enzymes which paralyze and digest the insides; the fly then sucks the liquefied meal through the proboscis
:bulletred: Adult robber flies attack other flies, beetles, butterflies and moths, various bees, ants, dragon and damselflies, Ichneumon wasps, grasshoppers, and some spiders
:bulletred: Place: Campina, Romania
:bulletred: Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 Macro Manual Focus Lens

I would hate to be the fly on the end of its sting. Your insides turning into mush is not a pleasant experience I'd like to witness DB>...
A beautiful picture this is c: It's so clear with so much detail~
But insects and bugs still creep me out a little |D;
