on cat's ear. The ones who like cat's ear are little.
Never see anybody carrying any pollen who's browsing the searocket. Wonder where she found it.
Bet it's a fly of some sort. I like the picture, though.
Pretty good chance of this being a leafcutter bee (pollen held on the underside of the abdomen)
Isn't that so nice?
No, not more bees...
Yes, more bees.
I saw a picture of a honeybee that looked sort of like this, though I wouldn't presume to make any real identification from this picture.
Some more of the type that I said looks like honeybee. I also saw a picture of a digger bee that looks kind of like that.
I found a picture of the honeybee Apis mellifera (nicely descriptive) that is basically identical in appearance to this.
White stripes. That's a new one for me, definitely.
I think it's a sand wasp. I read that they paralyze insects and drag them home for when the little ones hatch. Quite typical for wasps.
I saw a proboscis extent from between those bitey-looking jaws and felt a bit of surprise. Bitey jaws?
I wish it were trivial to know when I see flies. When something says that it's easy, that's because they assume that you have dead ones, or are happy to make dead ones for the purpose of figuring out what you just murdered.
