Feeding Scorpion Fly.

From Charly: Voyager has wondered what they eat with that mouth. Now we have an answer not only from a book, but from observation. They indeed do eat dead insects and apparently they are not above picking leftovers after spiders – in this case a discarded hover fly. Right next to the spider who captured it and was just a leaf width away. Stunning shots, absolutely click for full size!

    Those are amazing shots! And what an interesting bug. Just like a little vampire with a built in straw. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity in the best possible way.
