blue bee?
I was out doing some gardening today and ran into this. This resembles a type of bee in nature. I have seen plain blue ones before (that look like yellow-jackets) but never anything like this. You are not just seeing spots, The wings were jet black with white polka-dots on them. The orange and blue body was magnificent. Any ideas on what this is?
Thanks!

Hi Kathie,
As its name implies, the Polka-Dot Wasp Moth is a true moth that mimics a wasp in appearance. The caterpillars feed on oleander.
