Had a Robber Fly land on the outside of my kitchen window. He had a moth and was proceeding to feast on it's insides. Apparently they'll even take down wasps and hornets. I like these guys. 

The Asilidae are the robber fly family, also called assassin flies. They are powerfully built, bristly flies with a short, stout proboscis enclosing the sharp, sucking hypopharynx.[1][2] The name "robber flies" reflects their notoriously aggressive predatory habits; they feed mainly or exclusively on other insects and as a rule they wait in ambush and catch their prey in flight.
