The Beauty of Nature
Closeups in Nature
Bugs & Animals on Flowers/Foliage … July 2014

Photographed at my home, Batemans Bay, on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia.
[ Two Robber Flies on the lawn under my clothes line (I nearly trod on them) doing what comes naturally! ]

Having been stimulated to do a little research by Lance’s comment, I see that my original thoughts
were incorrect, the mating positions of Robber Flies are quite different and this is in fact one
Robber Fly with his meal! Thank you Lance!

I have left my original words other than the title, as otherwise many of the comments and responses would
not be relevant!
