Black Bees

As I was perusing my melon patches this morning, I found a
number of flying pollinators that I’ve never seen before. They
looked and flew the same as honey bees and were the same size, but were dark black in color…
At first, I thought they were honey bees, but upon a closer look, they
weren’t. They looked like a cross between a bee and a fly. Does anybody know what these might be?

Could this bee the ones?

Good little critturs to have around.

Kind of late for them to be out, tho


Thanks Mark, that’s exactly what they look like.
