Most of the summer, I was spotting these huge Robber flies (1.25" and very robust and very easy to hear). Towards the end of July, I started noticing them mating and some would land and crawl down into the grass in the lawn. The females were picking spots with soft sandy soils, digging a hole by rotating their abdomens and I assume laying their eggs. This is a picture of a female with her abdomen in the sand. These are the same species I posted here: http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/v ... php?t=3023
