Carnivorous Bee?

I thought that all bees, beetles etc. are pure herbivores living on honey,pollen and fruit and plant sap... till i saw this unknown insect in my garden, devouring a smaller one...


  1. Great photos - especially the closeups. If you don't mind, what type of camera are you using?

  2. All bees are like that, shades....
    Nice snap.. colourful and careful

  3. Great Photo.

    That looks like a "Robber Fly."
    They're related to house flies and other Diptera. You can tell because of the big eyes and reduced antennae, which is common among most flies (Diptera).


Was it Worth a Visit? :)
