"The gravitational attraction of the Earth endows objects with weight and causes them to fall to the ground when dropped."So, can someone tell me how this little guy gets airborne? Look at those tissue wings on that big hairy body. It's like sewing candy wrappers onto a bear and expecting it to pull flight maneuvers. Smokey the Bear should be so endowed.
I'm also at a loss to say what kind of bee this is. They're pretty docile. Sometimes they fly into you with a thud. I think they're responsible for the perfectly round, 3/8 inch diameter holes drilled randomly into our mailbox post, but I can't say for sure.
