Makes me think of the Carpenters song.
Think this is a Hover Fly too. Posing on top of a Purple Cinereria in the garden.

    No freehand Don.....thank you all so much! The hover fly have their bands joined in the middle of the back whereas the bees bands are separate. when I first posted in JPG somone told me my bee was a fly, so I studied up on them to make sure next time. To me they're all bees, if they sound like a bee, look (without my glasses on :} ) like a bee, then they're darn tootin' a bee.

    You CAN catch more flys with honey--so maybe he switched teams/hives--regardless, excellent shot

    I does look like a bee, but then you studied them just to find that they are a fly. Wow, who would have thought it would be a fly!!! Absolutely fantastic photo, Suzanne!!!

    Bees have two sets of wings, flies have only one, and bees have more body segments than flies. Am afraid to say its a fly. :)

    Among the very best macros I've seen. I'll never think of a fly in the same way again.
