Robber Flies are Pretty Impressive

I have always found robber flies to be impressive.  There are two small species around my place that are very common and I have photographed them a lot.  There are some others that are larger and not very common, and I found one today.

I would call this one a medium-sized robber fly.  It was well over 1/2 inch long, but I have seen robber flies that are a lot larger.

I don’t know the name of this one yet but I will try to find out.
