|Sorry for not having the ID for this insect. |
However, it was sucking the fluid from its prey, in this case a small honey bee.
It about 1.5cm in length when i spotted him. i believe this a mature one. In fact i saw a few smaller of its kind hanging around the shade on the same huge lime stone.

Amazing insect indeed. If you would have cropped it a little, more details could be seen.
Thank's to present such an unusual creature.

Hi Kean Hoon,
Very interesting and colorful insect. This is good nature shot because of the activity. The POV is good and there is nice detail and excellent deep colors.
Good timing in getting this shot. Well seen against white stone. My wild guess, this may be a species of Assassin Bug. A well done picture. TFS.
Nice shot! The white background really enhances the strong colors of the red and black insect. I don't know its identity either. Hopefully someone will know. Reid
Your insect is very similar to our "Rhinocoris iracundus" ( it is at me on gallery). This very curious, that in so distant countries, homothetic little creatures are. your has black legs, and my red. You can find out it how Your insect was named was?
You have picture beautiful. Super colours. To be visible details and what this worm it acts.
I greet warmly - Roma
