This fuzzy yellow flying bug was eating a Japanese Beetle.  Anybody know anything about this?

It is a Robber Fly known as a Southern Bee Killer, Mallophora orcina. According to BugGuide it is a: "Large, fuzzy, bee-mimicking robber flies. Resemble Laphria , another genus of robbers that mimic bumblebees, but is even hairier and has antennae with a very thin terminal final segment, whereas Laphria has thick antennae. "
