Soon after, I located this small robber fly from the genus Holcocephala. This genus is commonly referred to as a Gnat-Ogre and it may actually have eyes bigger than its belly. Gnat-Ogres perch on the tips of narrow leaves. The wind was blowing this little guy around so much that I wondered how it could ever focus on a passing meal. I’m going to enjoy the insects as much as I can before cold weather closes that particular avenue of pleasure.
