It certainly is the very first picture of a Carpenter Bee Robberfly on TN, Anna. Congratulations for bringing this very intriguing insect into light!
I'm amazed at its facial resemblance to a Carpenter Bee. The rest of it is that ruthless physique of a killer.
Very fine macro against a quaint BG.

Hope you are well. You know I am a great fan of your photographic skills, your vision, your marvellous notes and you as a gentle, matchless person of many great qualities and a blessing for us all here on TN.
I have never heard about this bee and particularly if it robs the carpenter bees which themselves look quite formidable.The image is beautiful, sharp and has been captured with incredible focus.Thanks a lot for sharing a new species, take care,

I'm sure you are very proud of little Nina, who by the way is growing up fast, (3yrs. this Oct) for sharing your love for nature. She has spotted an insect that I have never seen before, and as you stated, has a very unusual name. Perfectly captured in this outstanding macro image and displaying exceptional detail and beautiful colors. Great work!!

An impressive one! Nice to have a granddaughter interested in nature..I have the same experience as you what concerns my son, but never give up..
Interesting fly for its uglyness, what a hairy creature!
But a well taken shot showing the "beast "with perfect sharpness.
Thanks for this special and interesting posting

Excellent macro pic of the fly, I like the lighting and detail shown of the subject which is not easy as its predominantly black. The POV, composition and sharpness are also good.

capture really interesting.
I had never seen this specimen, also useful notes you've written.
Excellent detail and sharpness, good you have performed a wonderful shot.
Hello good day!
wow. Powerful, dramatic presentation of this ferocious looking predator fly, clear, well lighted, well composed. Doesn't seem to suffer from any ID crisis, but looking very self assertive and knowing what kind of bee to chase down next by a well aimed attack. Nice story indeed about your little assistant sharing with you that deep interest in nature.
With thanks, and all my best wishes to you and to Loot - and to Nina.
