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

Good close-up Annick of Mrs Chimp.
I love her eyes - so expressive. And I wonder - does she have any lower teeth

Laszlo - what a super photo of the fungi. So crisp and sharp, and the Silky Sheath looks quite beautiful
I am amazed at how your Lumix has captured all those details
Brilliant shot.

How good it is to see these dolphin swimming so close to the boat. The water is clear and you were so lucky with this shot.
Interesting to see the baby too - I've never capturred them as well as this...
BRAVO!

What a gorgeous shot of this little Beauty. Good capture Thorsten. His eyes are sharp and you show him off really well. I haven't seen any of these up here in the North Island

WOW Pam - what a stunning shot you have here of the Tui. Looks like he's in a full swinging mood too. I love his white curls and his tuft of white feathers - Excellent capture

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.
