|Tawny Mining Bee digging a hole!|
|Some kind of bee|
Bee-flies are also a bit like tiny cuckoos. What I mean by that is that they lay their eggs into the nests of solitary bees, in which the bee-fly larvae will hatch out and feast on the bee larvae. The way the bee-fly places its eggs inside the bee's nesting chamber is actually more sneaky than simply crawling inside themselves. What they do is hover at the entrance hole of the bee's nesting chamber and shoot them in! They are very accurate at it too. The bee returns none the wiser of what has happened. Try doing that with your Easter eggs!
