Wondering what bug this is that is sucking the life out of this tomato horn worm?

Bee Assassin eats Hornworm

Dear tn_wildflower,
It is nice to see that though it is called a Bee Assassin,
Apiomerus crassipes, one of the Assassin Bugs, does not subsist solely on bees.  This is a very nice food chain image.  See BugGuide for some comparison photos.

    Thanks for the I.D. on that. Couldn’t find it in my Bug Book!
