    Default May flowers attract more than bees

    It's interesting to see what gets photographed when you're trying to shoot bees on flowers. When I replayed this video on the laptop I could see it wasn't a bee, but what is it? The big eyes suggest it might be a fly. I kept it on the video so you could see the really creepy looking proboscis. It looks like a tongue which has the ability to 'chew.'

    Neat video, I made one of bees on Sumac. But not worthy of publishing,

    Well, I've been thoroughly humbled by this one...http://www.beesource.com/forums/show...are-a-big-part!
    He's got sharpness, beautiful blends, and one of my favorite pieces of music playing in the background.

    I believe this is what you saw maybe? I used to catch them with my hands with the neighborhood kids in S. California some 40 years ago. We used to call them H bees because of the H on their backs. It looks pretty close. I lived in S.W. Oregon as well but don't remember them there, but I was a teenager by then and had other things on my mind.
