For two afternoons now this critter has come zooming around my pear tomato non-stop. It's about the size, color and shape of a large flying cheetoh. The perspective here makes it look huge, but it's actually about 1/2 to 1 inch in length. It might be a bumblebee, but it doesn't seem to be visiting flowers. Hard to get a photo because it's kind of scary and it doesn't stop moving. Seems to be looking for something. A nesting site? Insects to eat? What?

Bumblebee or ? QWAGC6B

P.S. "The Flying Cheetohs" would be a great name for a rock and roll band.

Unfortunately, I could not see it clear enough to identify it.  I do have a lot of Bumblebees and Carpenter Bees visiting my Tomatoes though to get pollen to store in their nests. So, it could have been a Bumblebee.

I don't have any pictures of Bumblebees on the tomatoes, but here is one on a Milkweed bloom. You can see the pollen packed onto its legs Bumblebee or ? Bumble10

Carpenter bees are shiny.  Bumble bees/flying cheetohs are fuzzy.

The photo is a bumble bee nest in a SFG bed!!

I'll have to check carefully. Maybe there's a nest in my tomato pear tree.
