Robber Fly

•July 18, 2015 • 2 Comments

This caught my attention while I was in the garden yesterday. At first I had no idea what it was. Looking closer I realized it was a robber fly eating a bee.

Robber flies are fierce predators which feed on other insects.

Every so often I post close up photo of something I have seen lately. I put that photo at the top of my post, I post the full photo of the last close up at the bottom of the post. Here is this weeks photo… Guess what this is!

The answer to the last post is…

Grill on on old car

You know you sometimes if you look at things to closely it is really hard to figure out what they are, but then again if you only look at things from a distance, you can miss the important and interesting details. It is also often easy to get swayed by what someone else thinks/guesses.

This wisteria is amazing. It has been blooming off and on since spring.

The blooms are not as showy as they were in the see: spring

But they are beautiful just the same.

Nice to See You Baby

Finally! Look what I saw out the front window. Yep babies, and I think they are all still there.

It is hard to count them since they don’t all stay together and they blend in so well with the ground.

These photos were taken through the window because I knew the second I opened up the front door the quail would take off.

“When arguing with a stone an egg is always wrong”- African Proverb

The Gambel’s quail eggs have hatched, well all but one. 17 of the 18 eggs hatched. I have not seen the babies yet. I had expected to see them around the yard but there is no sign of them.
