:: Assassination ::
Lens: smc PENTAX-D FA MACRO 100mm F2.8 WR Camera: Pentax K-5 II s 

This is a picture of robber fly hunting or catching another smaller robber fly. This type of fly can be found in some of our backyard in Malaysia. In general, robber fly attacks a very wide range of prey, including other flies, beetles, butterflies and moths, various bees, ants, dragon and damselflies, ichneumon wasps, grasshoppers, and some spiders.

I took this full moment of picture using full flash method and with the aid of DIY flash diffuser. Taken by handheld at ISO100, Shutter speed 1/180 and aperture at F11.
I use ACR and Photoshop CS5 for image processing. The image processing is mild.

Please be free to see my photos collection at FLICKR.
Thank you for the 'LIKE' and nominations.

Enjoy!

Nominated. The great detail and color are what caught my eye. I'm not familiar with the robber fly, but most of the insects I try to capture with the camera will not stand still for me. Great shot of a moment in time.
