Some pictures from the 4th of July Weekend.

Many thanks to the good folks at Bug Guide for identifying the predatory Robber Fly.  (The insect dining on the bee in one of the photos.  Asilidae Proctacanthus rufus)   At first I thought it might be a hairy-headed dragonfly. Just kidding. Dragonflies generally don’t have hairy heads and cannot fold their wings like the insect in the picture.  I posted the picture on the Bug Guide site and had a positive ID within an hour. Amazing.  http://bugguide.net
