On June 5, I was on my deck, grilling on my Weber gas grill, and heard some buzzing. I looked down, and this is what I saw. Yes, I'm a little tardy with this post. Does anyone recognize what species these creatures might be (i'm not even sure if they are bees or bee mimics), and what exactly we're seeing here? I mean, I know what's happening, but I'd like to know the names of the parts and how everything works.... Help!
...edited: Maybe this photo will help with an ID? They sure look like flies that look like bees...
