It Bee Spring

"The gravitational attraction of the Earth endows objects with weight and causes them to fall to the ground when dropped."
- Wikipedia
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.
