A few days ago I was playing guitar (not well I promise) and this funny giant bee that looks like a clownish hornet came by and listened. It was hovering by the guitar riding the waves of vibration (all in E flat) - a very curious and unafraid insect! (See in the pic above I put little pink stars next to him so ya'll can see.)
I love it's boxy yet rounded eyes, they look like modern sculptures belonging in the MoMa in New York City- art critics would be droning on for hours about the 'organic' shapes. ;)
It also has a really bold, glassy body striped in black, yellow and brown - you can't miss one of these guys if you see it. Does anyone know what type of bee this is?
