There's a lot of rain in the forecast for this week but I did get to go out for a few hours today. I noticed the insects were sitting tighter than usual not being as skittish as normal and allowing me to get pretty darn close. I do believe this first one is a robber fly. I read there are over 70,000 species of them and there is very little resemblance between some of the species.

This hover fly was sitting tight as I kept firing away

And I saw a few teeny snails on some leafy plants with this one feeding.
