Is that some kind of bee?

I'm scared of bees.

That's one scary looking bug, neat capture though, Lisa!

Hi, Z!
This actually not a bee at all! Bees have 7 abdominal segments and have 2 pairs of wings - flies have only one pair. This bug is a hoverfly.

I should warn you that some actual bee photos may be coming up - Sorry if they freak you out!
