Orange colored Robber Fly - Laphria vultur - Female
Diamond Lake / Cascade Mts., Douglas County, Oregon, USA

Size: less than 1 in
This beautiful robber fly appeared to be egg laying in pre-existing holes in an old, downed log. The holes were about 3/16 inch wide.

Moved from Robber Flies.

I marked it female.

Laphria vultur; great shot!

Have to go somewhere right now, but I'll send a note to Eric Fisher who will know this!
