Couldn't get any closer, but this little wasp was quite aggressive. Attacked just about any insect that would come anywhere close to it's territory.

These two ants where busy feeling each other with their antennas on the steps of the house where I live. All of a sudden, the one would turn to the dead bug and goofed around with it for a few seconds, just to continue interacting with the onlooker. Eventually, the one on the left decided enough is enough, grabbed the grub and sped off like Speedy Gonzalez.

These flies have turned into a plague in our village. They love coming into the house, so one cannot dare leave doors/windows open.
