Monarchs vs Predators

I brought a Monarch caterpillar in from the garden thinking I was saving it from a predator. Unfortunately, a predator had already got to it.

Below are two pictures of predators. One was on a caterpillar and one was from the chrysalis. I believe the unusual insect was on the chrysalis and the fly was on the caterpillar.
