Predator bee

I’m not sure what type of bee this is? If anyone knows what type of bee this is please share in the comments


This is most likely a very rare photo opportunity. It is for sure the first I’ve had of some type of bumble bee after just making a snack out of a forager.

    Definitely a member of the Mallophora species. It is a bee mimic and yes, a predator! They don’t occur in large numbers! Very cool!
