Need identification of this bug. Please help. Thanks
Does this insect have two wings or four wings? It is very difficult to make out some details, but we at first thought this might be a Bot Fly. Upon enlarging your images and attempting to lighten them, we now believe it is a Carpenter Bee. See the images on the Nature, Cultural and Travel Photography Blog of Pakistan for some additional photos of living specimens of Carpenter Bees.
Thanks a lot for quick response.
I don’t really remember 2 or 4. But I remember they were transparent and had some colors in them .
I’ve attached photo of degradable plastic spoons of same color as wings.
Hi again Hijab,
Thanks for sending the photo of the plastic cutlery, but we will not be adding it to the posting.
Oh yes I Googled. It is carpenter bee. You are right.
