so i was sitting in my room and i looked on the screen of my window and saw a large-ish bug mating with a bee (bumble bee i think). the bee was “on bottom” and the larger bug was on top. the large bug had wings and large bulge-y black eyes. it seemed as if the wings went into a point at the bottom so it appeared somewhat in a triangle shape. i don’t know if that type of bug and bees mate often but the mating thing might help.
Bees and other insects do not engage in interspecies mating. Your image is not ideal for identification purposes, but we believe you have observed a Robber Fly eating a Bee. Large Robber Flies often prey upon wasps and bees.
