It was sheer pleasure to see the robber fly catch the moth in mid air and then take it to a nearby leaf. As the moth was bit heavy the robber fly could not take it too far away from me and i followed it for few meters couple of times (in dense grass!!) and got this!
Couple of interesting close-ups in comments as usual :)
