This is a fly that is a bee mimic. Hopefully someone will be able to offer an ID for you. Nice spotting!!

My initial thought is that its a hornet...I'm not sure what species though. Nice spotting. I don't think hornets are real common in my area...Or maybe i've mistaken them for bumblebees from a distance.
