Robber Fly with Red Legs - Laphria sadales

Robber Fly with Red Legs - Laphria sadales
Chassell, Houghton County, Michigan, USA
July 14, 2013
This Robber Fly interested me with its red legs. I took the picture at 3:00 p.m. It was using the log
as a hunting perch. This was in an open area, but surrounded by a second growth hardwood forest. The
location is in the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan near Lake Superior.

Not the clearest shot, but we have few images of this species, and none from Michigan.

Moved for expert attention.
