A Bee flying, some Bee Flies and A Beetle

A bit more on bees, wasps, et al, and their insect imitators. The picture below was a fluke shot ... I happened to catch this Honeybee just as she was launching herself from the goldenrod.

A bee fly, probably a member of the genus Villa.

Another one of our local bee flies: Exoprosopa decora.

Locust Borer (Megacyllene robiniae) ... a beetle impersonating a wasp
