Couldn't find the robber fly category but I suspect it's a couple of the smaller kind.

Judith, great shots of a mating pair with the female gorging on the male's 'nuptial gift', a small fly of another kind.

Thanks. Hope you all don't mind I'm not so hot on the ID side. Memory like a sieve - got hit with a post viral thing, find it hard to retain facts :-(. Enjoying going hunting with my camera though :-)
