So, as I mentioned on this site yesterday, I’ve joined Reddit, where I posted a query as to what sort of insect I had caught in the camera’s eye.
The answer? What I saw was a “Robber fly, Wyliea mydas. According to the American Museum of Natural History this fly mimics the infamous Tarantula Hawk,” according to “OldCaspian” on the “subreddit “/r/whatsthisbug.” I thank OldCaspian for the identification! Here is a link to my photo of the Robber fly.
