It seems they can hold this position for hours waiting for an unsuspecting victim to get too close.

That's an excellent macro of the Robber Fly. You do see these insects hanging around, waiting for the opportunity to strike. I like the colors in this image. They provide good contrast.

Thanks Mike. The good thing is they will hold still for me to take their photos.

Thank you pichaser. Yes, it is getting to be that time to get out there for some macro shots.

A "patient hunter", in that specific case it means a pretty easy shot for a "photo hunter".
Thanks for sharing Todd.
