Taken on a recent trip to Cyprus, this insect had the most amazing buzzing sound from the vibration of its wings, not associated with the normal sound a bee would make. I am not sure technically whether this is a bee or some other type of insect, but its long snout or feeding antanae certainly had the length to penetrate well into the flower. Maybe someone out there knows what type of insect this is.
