Cor! Great sequence. So they can take on most things, wasps and dragonflies even! I've never come across one before.
Wow. I think it is doing yoga. Well done. Could ask for a bit more depth of field, but suspect it is not to be had outside of a stacked image.
I would have liked a bit more DOF, if only to get the other middle leg in focus. I'm still really pleased with what I got. Hell, I would have been happy to get one shot let alone the sequence.
For the entomologists amongst us, I think this is a Hornet Robber Fly, but would appreciate confirmation.
Now that's quite a sequence. I struggle to get 1 frame sharp in macro...
Nice set Martin
It looks like a Hornet Robber fly (I am no entomologist) did you get a shot side on or see it side on. It is hard to say as resources showing all 28 (or 29 depending on where you look) species does not seem to be available.
Probably the best I have for I.D. purposes.

Interesting article there too. I didn't know that.
Based on the info I have seen and not having any info saying what it can be confused with it looks your ID is correct
