Owlflies - dragonfly-like insects with large bulging eyes and strongly knobbed antennae.

They are only distantly related to the true flies, and even more distant from the dragonflies and damselflies. They are predators of other flying insects, and are typically 5 cm (2.0 in) long.

I adore these, but have only been licky enough to spot a couple here. Whereabouts did you capture this one?

There were quite of lot of these this early summer (late May into mid June) in the Penine Alps in Switzerland. They remind me of the Eurofighter! Grin
