Can you please identify this bee/fly?
Because it so resembles the Giant Resin Bee, we thought your Bee (definitely NOT a fly which would only have two wings) might also be a Mason Bee in the genus Megachile. We located many similar looking Mason Bees on iSpot including this individual and this individual.
