We found this moth (?) near our fireplace. That room was pretty dark for a week because we were on vacation.
I relocated winged creature outside. It couldn’t fly very well. Might have been at the end of its life.
Just curious as to what it really is. Thought it was a hornet/bee hybrid at first. Thanks!

Dear Lisa,
This looks to us like an Eastern Carpenter Bee,
Xylocopa virginica, and according to BugGuide, it ranges as far west as Colorado.

Thank you! I linked to your site on my Facebook page.  I had a photo of the bee on there.
