In the backyard, bumble imitator sucking a honey bee dry. Sorry for the fuzzy pic, you try holding a sunflower still on a windy day and focusing a cheap camera on bugs:)

Haven't had any luck on ID, at first I thought it was a bumblebee and a honeybee sitting next to each other, then saw the proboscis! It was very fast and pretty quiet in flight, not like a bumble at all.

Saw it again yesterday, I'm gonna go with a fly of some sort? Psyched myself up to grab it for closer examination, but only took one half hearted crack at it:)
