One of the best parts of wandering the high desert and photographing the wonderful world around me, is seeing nature in action.
During a recent trip through the Dry Canyon Trail in Redmond, Oregon, I was looking for the small critters which live on the plants of canyon. As I looked over one area, I spied a small, possible stingless bee which I was keeping an eye on for it to land somewhere.
Suddenly, a large blur flashed by and the bee was gone. But my eyes immediately picked up the blur and followed it a short distance away to an old Juniper twig, where the blur landed to enjoy its meal.
I walked over, crouched down a bit and began clicking off images.
So, for the nineteenth round of Misty's Camera Critter Meme, I'm proud to present, the wonderful, the beautiful, the exotic....Giant White-tailed Robber Fly.
