Robber Fly
Lovely photo! Wish I'd find a fly like this.

Thanks :)

It looks like a pipe-cleaner. I didn't even realize robbers like this existed. Nice Shot.

Thanks :)

I forgot about Megaphorus!! Yes, I think it is!
Thank you Edward!

Oh, do you know some Japanese?

delightful japan
i do speak a little, however, i have had little opportunity lately to use any. i am very out of practice. spent a few weeks in Tokyo a few years ago... it was really fun. not too many bugs in the city, though.
