Up Close - Robber Fly

I was cutting the lawn and the dragon flies seemed to be all over so I got my camera to see if I could catch one. I didn't do too well but found this guy sitting on a fence rail. I handheld this shot and then went in for the tripod; when I came back, he was gone. I need some help with an ID so if anyone knows I'll gladly add to the title.

 

Thanks Jim "jimf_29605" for the ID - Robber Fly. These guys are nasty, look him up.
