I found another strange insect flying around in my garden today that I'm hoping to get identification on.

This website was helpful previously, but I haven't been able to figure it out this time. It flys around pretty bee-like, but also sort of burrowed when it fell into the soil.

Good photo, and I'm pretty sure it is Bumble flower beetle.

These beetles don't do anything bad to healthy plants, so you don't need to worry about them.
