I found this 'bee' on my garage wall in Bristol, UK on 9th April 2011. I was wondering if anyone can identify it? I have never seen anything like it in the garden before or since.
This looks a bit like a bee, but it's a type of fly (order Diptera), namely the Common Bee-fly (Bombylius major). There is a good page on these insects:
Congratulations for the photo!
Thanks very much Florin - that's answered my question!
