Looks like an old robber honeybee. Their hairs fall/get chewed off and abdomens darken.
I don't know. I regularly see bees like that on flowers... on which I never see honey bees on. They are also significantly smaller than my honey bees. I'm not convinced this is a honey bee. Nor am I certain it isn't, though.

Its hard to tell the size on my screen. I know there are several other bees and even flies that resemble honeybees.

That is a honeybee. Likely a robber to be that black and slick.
