Robber flies and a vacation!

I'll be on vaca for a few days (non-birding related), so I probably won't post again until Monday. Be sure to check out The Wandering Tattler on Thursday for the new I & The Bird. In any event... I found these two mating Robber Flies (Asilus sericeus) a few weeks ago at Wildcat Ridge in Morris County. They were rather large and conspicuous. They posed nicely for a picture. Robber Flies (Asilidae) are an interesting group of insects. I think they're starting to become more popular among naturalists. I see a lot of people photographing them and a lot of people pointing them out in the field.
