About 18 years ago my son threw one of his toys on the roof of our garage. I climbed up to get it and as I reached toward it, the most wonderfully bright solid yellow mini-bee (perfectly proportioned) hovered 4 inches from my hand. I had never seen one before and haven’t seen one since. Looked all over about it to no avail. Ever seen one?
Hovered as in like a hummingbird? If yes, indeed there *is* a honeybee that hovers similar to a hummingbird... called the "hummingbird bee". It's rather large at 2", but I've seen here in the northeast a regular-sized honeybee that hovers like a hummingbird.
