large fly, iridescent purple wings with a bee in its mouth.
I spotted this at Baobeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary. I thought it might be a parasitic wasp but I'm not sure.
Wow! fantastic spotting Dan
Thanks Juan for the ID and thanks everyone for the comments. This has been a mystery to me for so long. I'm glad to see it get an ID.
yes, it's a nice picture
...awesome photo though!
This is not a wasp, is an Robber fly (Asilidae) and is not parasitic, is predating on a bee
