What is this bug?



Kind of furry like a bee but bigger and longer and not exactly like a wasp.

Ok now identify my wasp. It looks like a pseudomasrus vespoides. It could be related but it does not have clubbed antennae and the eyes are the wrong color.

Chaindropz,
I don't know what your wasp is, but is that your wren photo? Very cool

Yes that is my wren photo. He did not like the close up. The Irish have a strange history with this bird that was a suprise to me. The line beside the picture is part of a poem I think.

What I want to know is, does this Bumble Bee Mimicking Moth copy the Bumble Bee right down to the stinger? Just curious.
