Caption: Robber fly. Close-up of the head of a robber fly (family Asilidae), showing one of its large compound eyes (upper right) and its sharp proboscis (lower left), which it uses to inject its victims with neurotoxic saliva. Robber flies are predators of other flying insects that they ambush in flight.
