What kind of bee is this?
Dear bugman,
Found this bee in the mountains of centeral Idaho just below McCall. Do you know what kind it is? Is it a honey bee?
Thanks,
Allyson labrum

Hi Allyson,
This is a Syrphid Fly, also known as a Hover Fly. It looks to us like a female Sericomyia chrysotoxoides according to this image on BugGuide.
