    While I was in the garden weeding today, a robber fly came and landed on my shoulder. I looked over at him to find he had a honey bee in his mouth! He then flew away as if to say "nyah, nyah, nyah-nyah, nyah!"

    I have seen them catch yellow jackets also, I think they are pretty neat to be able to do that (yeah i know, it was one of the girls but that is just mother nature at her finest).

    Sorry for the loss! :mrgreen:

    I just think they're so totally bizarre looking. . .kind of cartoonish! Although, I must admit, pretty cool.
