The Hornet Robber fly – 8th August 2009

Today I spent another very pleasant afternoon at my friend’s meadow in Cholsey. His local speciality is Asilus crabroniformis, the Hornet Robber fly, one of Britain’s largest flies and I managed to get a few rushed photos of one (see below). We also saw another Clouded Yellow butterfly on the meadow and I managed to fill all of my insect pots with a mixture of tachinids and sarcophagids! 🙂
