This was a field trip for the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin on robber flies. This isn't the greatest photo of Dasylechia atrox because it was on the underside of the branch but this large robber fly flew right in front of me carrying a bumble bee that it proceeded to feed on for over an hour.
