Robber fly

Robber fly female with mite(1)
Robber flies (Order Diptera, Family Asilidae) are extremely successful predators and have voratious appetites. They mostly prey on other insects and are capable of attacking and immobilising bees, wasps, dragonflies, grasshoppers and even spiders, however, they tend to be opportunistic feeders, feeding on whatever insects happen to be available in a particular habitat.

(1) Mites, along with ticks, are small arthropods belonging to the subclass Acari (also known as Acarina) and the class Arachnida.
