when i saw this robberfly buzzing around i was pretty surprised .. i didnt think i'd see any more of them till spring/summer ..

thanks everyone for your votes and comments .. this scored way more than i was expecting .. he's not that attractive for a robberfly .. probably coz he's way past his use by date .. !! :)

promise he'll be the last robberfly i'll put in dpc for a long time ...!!..:)

Wow, Roz! I'm surprised it isn't on the front page or with a ribbon. I guess now that its winter over there, maybe some western hemisphere macro shooters may have a chance :) Course, the bar is set off-the-chart-high, so I reckon not. The macro awards will probably just have to wait until it is spring in Australia again.

This is awesome -- as ALL of your wonderful studies in macro photography are!
