I was trying to identify a bug that I took a photo of this morning. He was eating a small ant. Based on my search for a red bug with white spots I found your web and Id’ it as an Assassin bug.
Baton Rouge La
This is an immature Milkweed Assassin Bug, Zelus longipes. Though there is another small winged insect in your photo, the Assassin Bug does not appear to be feeding.
