Cross Plains, Dane County, Wisconsin, USA
June 24, 2008
Here are some additional photos of a Robber Fly similar to the ones I submitted for June 14, 2008. This time I was able to get quite close to the fly to take some photos. It apparently had an itch and didn't notice me until I stuck the camera in its face.
