Maira gloriosa, a species of predatory robber fly (family Asilidae). Adept at flight; great vision. Stabs its prey with a needle sharp proboscis and injects the chosen target with a saliva of digestive enzymes, then sucks up the liquified organs. Mmmmetal. (at The Field Museum)
I was walking on the bike trail and this fucko tried for the SECOND TIME to lure me into his vehicle. The last time was a few months ago. This guy preys on girls on this bike trail, idling in this barren parking lot until someone walks by. Then he rolls up to you, rolls down his window, and said something I couldn’t hear but it was “something something baby”.
I ran away last time and he sped off. This time, I kept walking until I was behind this fence, and he drove back to his parking space. I stopped behind the fence and stared at him, then he rolled up to me again and said something else I couldn’t hear. As soon as I raised my phone to take a photo, he cranked up his window and sped out of the lot really fast.
I might have fucked up, because now he might find a new spot. I’m going to arm myself to the teeth and keep walking this path, until I can get a picture of his license plate number. He was a latino or middle eastern guy with a short black beard and a black hat, maybe in his 30’s or 40’s. It was hard to see from a distance.
If you live in or near Olympia, WA watch out for this vehicle.
