Robberfly (Family Asillidae) with prey. at Mount Sion Park, Glenbrook, New South Wales, Australia.

I have been participating in photography in one form or other since I was very young. It has been a passion that has not left me.

Most of my photographs are of natural subjects both above and below the water, with macro photography being my favourite.

I use Nikon gear and Ikelite housings.

    Fabulous capture Andrew !
    The Cicada is a very big meal for the Robberfly !

  • Thanks, Trish. The robberfly managed to fly around with the cicada, quite well, too.

    Great catch – both you and the robberfly!

  • Thanks, Enivea. There was no way the robberfly was going to leave this meal behind.

    That is a different meal to see one with Andrew.

  • A day later I saw another robberfly (different species) with a different prey item in almost the same location.
