Robber Flies (Assassin Flies)


September 27, 2020, while settling into his new home in Maryland, WooFDriver noticed and captured these pair of mating Robber Flies(Asilidae)! Also known as Assassin Flies!! These predatory flies are often seen perched exposed, waiting for their prey of many other insect species. They have a 1-3 year life span and are observed worldwide. Just be careful to approach as Robber Flies will bite if they feel they are being mishandled!  to learn more about these winged creatures

Enjoy the pictures WooFDriver has captured…
