My wife was looking out the front window at her flowers and called me to see " a really wierd bee."
The critter was at least an inch or more long and colored pretty much like a slender bumble bee. BUT, it wasn't.
It had very long antenna, long legs, and a long visible probiscis. It moved and hovered like a humming bird, and carried its back legs straight out to the rear.
We watched it for several minutes before it zipped away.
Any ideas on what it was?
