Walking finally in the correct direction, I came to a beach-side government engineering building and was amazed to see these very large, nearly black, fying insects, acting like bees, but in Darth Vader gear. I moved very carefully among them, considering them stinger-armed and dangerous. Maybe they were harmless and sweet, and it was all an act to keep dumb mammals away from their plants, but I was taking no chances. An update, discovered the same typeinsects harvesting blooms in a tree behind my house in CA.
