Bug fight

This series of pictures was taken on November 24th, 2008 at Bentsen Palm Village RV Resort, Mission Tx. It shows a fight between a red Paper Wasp and a bug of the Assassin family. If you know the exact name of the Assassin bug, please let me know. Assassin bugs kill their prey by stabbing them and sucking out their juices and many times will attack and kill bugs 2 or 3 times their size and win. This time the Assassin didn't win. Texas Red sent him scurrying down the potato tree. Yes, that's what it's called. It's a potato tree.
