Robber Flies
Just was looking through your submissions and came across this photo. What a wonderful find. It's nice to see other photos from different parts of Wisconsin.

Not many folks post images from western Wisconsin, especially Buffalo County - I like being the bug/plant/butterfly person from Buffalo County!

Fantastic image!
Thank you for submitting this great shot.
