Survival of the fittest, but in this case it seems to be in reverse order as to what most people would assume. That is what makes this an even more spectacular photo Robert. Excellent capture and presentation.

Well, this has to be the capture of the year. Can you tell me what your settings were on this? Fantastic. Poor bee. A Robber Fly? Looks simular to a dragon Fly. Must be native to your country. By the way, the title is priceless. Super capture.

The title of this was doggoned clever Robert. The capture is even better! You just continue to post images of higher quality each and every time!! I have never heard of a "Robber Fly" and from this picture, I don't want to meet with one either!! Nature seems cruel at times. The other night we were sleeping with the window open and we have red fox that lives behind our house in the woods and the fox was dining on rabbit! I never knew that a rabbit could make such piercing screams. It doesn't seem right, but I know that it is the nature of the food chain. You have demonstrated that so eloquently here. Thank you for sharing this with me. Much appreciated my friend!! To my favorites it goes.....
