Robber Fly

I thought this little fly was kind of cute when I tookl its photo, that was until I identified it and learned more about it.
Robber Flies are predators, catching smaller flies on the wing, poisoning them, dissolving their insides with an enzyme and then sucking out the liquid. A bit like spiders.
So not really so cute. I think i’ll look for more butterflies.
Im learning a lot about small creatures by photographing them up close.
