Robber fly (Asilidae)

These guys were out in force around Byron Bay during January of 2017. Many were found roosting on low branches and twigs at night and seen actively hunting prey during the day or mating. Interestingly, this fly was consuming a cockroach at night - presumably they had crossed paths in the dark?
