I have been seeing these is my area, never seen this before. One day I came out to the garage and noticed this bug flying around with a wasp in is legs
This is a Hanging Thief, a Robber Fly in the genus Diogmites. The common name Hanging Thief is appropriate since they tend to feed on their prey, often large stinging insects caught on the wing, by dangling from one leg.
