Caption: Robber fly with its prey. Macro photograph of a female robber fly (Triorla interrupta, upper right) with a common white-tail dragonfly (Plathemis lydia) that it has caught. The robber fly caught the dragonfly in the air and wrestled it to the ground before inserting its proboscis into the victim and sucking out its insides. Photographed in the USA.
