An impressive insect


Saw this bug today. The image is the result of grabbing the camera! Quite frightening looking rows of spikes or hooks on the front two pairs of legs on this guy.

  1. That’s a Robber Fly. It’s basically a giant housefly. Mostly beneficial, they eat any other insect they can catch, which includes other beneficial insects.
