Works Synopsis

The Asilidae are the robber fly family, also called assassin flies. In general, the family attacks a very wide range of prey, including flies, beetles, butterflies, moths, various bees, ants, dragon and damselflies, ichneumon wasps, grasshoppers, and some spiders. This is one of the varieties in the Robber fly family. The body is small about an inch with brownish black color. This particularly species is difficult to photograph. They are very aggressive, generalist hunters which often appearing in plain grass. When they catch their prey, they will inject toxic which is digestive liquid into the prey to paralyze the prey from the inside and this time is the best opportunity to shoot. While photograph this species, I have to be very careful not to let them feel alarmed, otherwise, they will be frightened and usually discard the food in its mouth.Robber flies exhibit minimal courtship behavior. Instead, the male pounces on the female much like an act of prey acquisition. Copulation is accomplished in a tail-to-tail fashion with the male and female genital interlocked. Flight is not completely inhibited during mating. I am delighted I got these imagines because for five years I have been photograph Robber fly, only at this time I am able to shoot their reproduction act of this species.
