I am not sure if this it a bee or a fly. It looks much like a bee with a bright yellow butt. I have only seen it on sunflowers. At first I thought it was a bee covered with yellow pollen, but have now seen enough to know that is not the case.:s
giant resin bee maybe. I found one robbing honey from a hive in a wall one day freaked me out looked like a super queen lol. from what I read about them in Alabama. where interduced in 1999 from a ship from japan
