Robber Fly with Prey

Back above the surface found this robber fly with prey, it's "Fly eat Fly".  The robber is about 25mm long or so.  The Oly 300mm focuses quite close and easily captured the image handheld.

Fine job here. Perfect DOF, combined with the colors, and your nice, sharp subject really pops from the subtle bg.
Good light,
Craig

Very nice, Chris. Looks like something out of a horror movie.
