Nice, but I believe that's actually a fly that "mimics" a bee/wasp...

You can tell by the large eyes that take up most of the head, The two wings instead of
four, the small stubby antenne and the thick waist...

It's probably a type of hover fly... :wink:

Edit:

Oops, Larry beat me to it...! :tongue:
