Sorry – couldn’t resist! This little fellow was alongside a bumble bee on my muscari this morning and I managed to get two photos. I can’t remember seeing one before. Please help

This is NOT a Bee, but rather, a Greater Bee Fly, a harmless pollinating insect. Flies have a single pair of wings while other flying insects have two pairs of wings.
