Artist's Description

This shot of the Giant Yellow Robber Fly – Blepharotes coriarius is not a macro shot, it is taken with my 100-400L series zoom with a 25mm extension tube. This fly is close to 2" long. They fly with a very loud droning sound and the yellow abdomen is fully exposed in flight giving them a very dramatic appearance.

Luckily they are predators on other insects. Imagine if they had a taste for human blood like a horsefly!

My place
North Burnett. Queensland. Australia.

Shot distance approximately 1 metre.
