    Default Identify this bee

    I live in Oman in the Middle East, and I have some of these bees around my garden. Could someone please help identify this bee.

    I cant see the photo yet but Apis florea would be a good guess for your area http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apis_florea

    No, it's not Apis florea. It's not a bee that I recognize, but it does look similar to some species of carpenter bees that we have here in the USA.
