This is one of the largest and most impressive of the North American Robber Flies in the family Asilidae. This is a Belzebul Bee-Eater, Mallophora leschenaulti, which you can verify by comparing your image to this image on BugGuide.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I was looking on bugguide.net all day, but I was looking for a type of bee not a bee killer haha! I appreciate your help very much! God bless!
