Hi Kiril!

nice capture in dificult conditions!
the predator looks like a odonata (damselfly)...but not sure!

Hi Kiril.
I am sure this one is a Robber fly, there are a lot of species. You can have a look, if you make a search here in TN, you will get a lot of wonderful shot like THIS ONE from Howard.
It is a nice shot, with interesting colours and soft light but I think you need a wider lense to use as reverse, as only the center of the image is quite clear, the rest has a severe aberration.

This is a Machimus but not Machimus cingulatus (as the one from Howard).
I don't mind much the aberrations. Revelant parts are crisp clear. Colors are brilliant. Great pic.

Hello Kiril,
The hunter's definitely a robber fly (Asilidae), I'd say a Dioctria sp., while the prey is not a fly but some parasitic wasp.

Best regards,
