That's a grea shot. Looks a lot like a robber fly aka bee killer. I saw one for the first time myself this past week, attacking a bee no less.

Edit:
Yep. I looked it up, this one looks like the "Southern Bee-killer"

8 - Nice capture. Like the composition and framing. Sharper, which you're likely well aware, especially on the 'face' of the .. unusually hairy bee.. make this even better in my opinion. Be nice if the fore of the seed pods was in focus too, but difficult. Very good 'straight from the camera' shot.
