Wasp & Robberfly Having Lunch Together

Post by beetleman »

Ken declared Wasp week. A wasp in a different Situation. I saw this robber fly coming in for a rather hard landing. Seems it had a large happy meal to contend with….turned out to be a hornet. I like the fact that he was hanging on with only one foot . I would be holding the wasp with five feet also :shock: . The wire is a piece of electric fence wire. This fly was rather large and colorful for a Robberfly. He also has a cool looking oriental symbol on his forehead :shock:

Some really nice shots there Doug. The first is sort of comical with the fly hanging by one leg and holding its meal with the rest. :D

This is different. I never seen them "hang around" like that.

Very nice shots. Could you provide some info on how the capture was made? Lens, ISO, f/stop, shutter speed, flash or no flash. Thanks.
