Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Robber Flies Getting It On

I once went on a great camping trip with several friends and we had a great night sitting around the campfire and blacklighting.  The following morning, we all went for a hike before breaking camp and I found this amorous pair sitting on a tree branch:

The photo’s kinda cruddy (taken from far away with my original point and shoot digital camera several years ago), but I just love the little mustaches on these flies!  So cute.

    • Excellent! I keep meaning to submit some of my old photos to BugGuide for IDs but I never get around to it… I am not a taxonomist, so these things don’t just pop into my head the way they seem to for the other bug bloggers of the world!
