The Robber Has Arrived!

Machimus atricapillus aka Kite Tailed Robberfly

Like its name says This Fly is a robber! It is very dangerous (but not for Humans) .
It kills flies, hoverflies, dragonflies, damselflies,wasps, bees, grasshoppers, spiders and even Butterflies! Everything he sees tasty he attacks and kill with his toxic sting.
If this wasn’t enough, these insects do prefer places particularly abundant in aridity and sun where they can camouflage and watch with attention their preys to plan to kill them!
Be careful insects, he has not mercy!
