Day Six Pix, The Photography of John Hartleroad | Bug in the Pool

Bug in the Pool

August 10, 2018  •  1 Comment

Judy and Maddy spotted this bug floating in the pool yesterday. I took this photo with my iPhone so that I could identify it. Apparently, it is a red footed cannibal fly, Promachus rufipes. The size of these species of robber flies is 28-35mm. It was every bit that big. And looks ferocious. It is predatory with every other insect and will even attack hummingbirds.

I’m amazed at the details one can get with an I phone
