Bees (and Wannabees) of New Zealand

Our friend Eva recently returned from an amazing trip to New Zealand. Along with penguins, sheep, flowers, mountainsides, starfish, and Roberta Flack (!!), Eva encountered some lovely bees and bee-imitators (a.k.a. "wannabees"). With her permission, we're sharing some of her images here. Can you tell the real bees from the bee mimics?
