Default 1st Robberfly sighting of the Season

I dont usually see these this early in the year, typically I will find them as the season progress',, these are an amazing predator !! these (2) are still quite small yet, they feed on other insects, they have amazing speed and agility, with their long legs they capture their prey and usually pin it against a branch, then they pierce the victim with its Proboscis and inject a tissue dissolving saliva into the victim them will withdraw the bodily fluids using its Proboscis like a straw,,, should I have saved you the GORY details

Beautiful shots as usual, but a bit too much information in your text...
