Photographed this bug in my south Florida back yard. It was really attracted to my basil plant. Is it a bee or a Fly?
We first reported on Green Orchid Bees, Euglossa dilemma, in Florida in 2004, and that posting created quite a stir. We have since learned that this Central American species has become well established in southern Florida.
