Hi Janice,
Ivan is quite right.
This isn't a Mason Bee but a Black or American Soldier Fly, Hermetia illucens, quite easily distinguished by thoe white bands on the back legs :)
You can find it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermetia_illucens

Hi Ron, I wish could view this because it looks great from the thumbnail & everyone else seems to like it. Sadly, I can only get it to load the top 2cm, the rest is all grey. I've gone off the page & back to it a few times but no luck yet ..... I'll try again later.

Beautiful colours. I wouldn't have thought this was an orchid at first glance. It is quite unlike anything we have here in New Zealand.
Interesting to read the origin of the word orchid too. I never knew.

Wonderful shot Luciano. What a beautiful spring photo, and I've learned something. I never realised that there were flowers called Snowflakes. I would have thought these were Snowdrops if it wasn't for your note. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely capture Brenda. What a beautiful coloured butterfly.
We have nothing like these occurring naturally in New Zealand.
In fact, I only see a few butterflies each year, usually Cabbage Whites or Admirals. You are so lucky to have these.
