Another robber fly

Another robber fly
Sorry -- I can't resist these little fellows when I see them atop grass at sunset. They are so strangely constructed, and though they are common, so generally unknown. The light on the wings of this one gives a sense of stained glass, and stained glass is good.

They are interesting insects; more than any other I've found, the impression they leave is a matter of point of view. From this angle, it's pretty; from the side it's hump-backed and misshapen; from the front it is menacing. A metaphor for much in our world, I suppose!
