cuckoo bee?

 

Edit: maybe it's just the mouth part of the bee as San Diego Knipser pointed out?

 

Edit: a wasp, of the family Larridae (some sources state it as a subfamily Larrinae of the Sphecidae, but I believe they have been separate). Possibly a species of Liris or Tachytes, but exact ID not possible without a specimen - from Vespa Bicolor. Thanks.
