Carpenter Bee

Dear Clive,
Based on this image from Borneo in our archives, we are very confident this is a Carpenter Bee.

Thank you for your quick response, however I think you may have misidentified, as the carpenter bee does not have a furry body and legs, or fox-like ears, as is shown in the photograph.
Many thanks, Clive
