Your letter to the bugman: Dear Bugman,
Are these bees or wasps? where feeding on bottle brush. They where not small, much bigger than paper wasp, but they looked much more wasp like than a bee.

Thanks in advance

This is definitely a Wasp and not a Bee. It looks to us like one of the Paper Wasps in the genus Polistes, but we have not found any images from Spain on the internet that resemble your individual. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to substantiate or provide a correction.
