At least I think it’s a native bee. It’s not a honey bee, and the flower is a native. As a secondary identification request, I’m curious about what voracious and unseen bug is eating the flowers

Long-Horned Bee

Hi Barbara,
This is a Long-Horned Bee in the tribe Eucerini, but we are not certain of the species.  We spent the entire morning editing the presentation for tomorrow, and just when we whittled the images down to the best, you send in this candidate.

    I saw a solid black bee today on my blooming crepe myrtle in North West Florida. I have never seen a solid black bee and really haven’t found anything online. He did no have spots, he is solid black. Any suggestions?
