Insect eating bee - Proctacanthus rufus
Virginia Beach Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Virginia, USA
July 4, 2013
Can anyone identify the insect eating the bee? Photo taken in marsh at the Back Bay NWR. Thought it might be a dragonfly, but I don't see any wings and dragonflies can't fold their wings. Some sort of damselfly perhaps? Unfortunately this is the only shot I have. I was busy photographing Moccasins (Agkistrodon piscivorus piscivorus) at the time and thought I was getting a quick pic of dragonfly's lunch - until I viewed the image later that day. Would like to post the photo on my website if we can get an ID. Many thanks!
