Tiger Fly, Coenosia tigrina.

By Vpics
A Tiger fly, Coenosia tigrina, which measures about 6mm from head to wingtips busy eating a tiny Sepsidae fly which it caught in flight. These Tiger flies are very similar in behaviour to Robber flies and launch lightning fast attacks on other flies as they pass overhead.
