Robber Fly!!! These guys are crazy looking... I once saw one eating a bumble bee, so you can imagine how big they can get!

Your shot is amazingly clear, and how you got this guy to sit still for that long is truly remarkable!

Here's another one from the 60D experiment:

I really don't need two 100mm macros either.

Agreed. Fabulous shot!
...but even I was wondering how you got so close to it (with tubes), without scaring it off.

Thanks,

Thank you.

Robber Flies aren't really all that skittish if you're careful. I start from several feet away, and scoot forward on my stomach. Luckily, these flies seem to like to stay within a small area if it's good for hunting; if you scare it off, it's likely to land again within a few feet.

Example: I watched this guy off and on for several hours yesterday, waiting to see if he'd catch something. I went out once and he had this moth. He stayed in the same six foot radius area all day. Every time I went out to check on him, getting close enough to see if he had a victim, he never flew away.

Adding a flash to macro shots yields a remarkable improvement in clarity. I'll definitely be using one from now on!

I'm on a spider kick these days:
