I've never seen this sort of fly or bee in the central valley of California. I found it l laying on its back in the dirt, and moved it with a stick to some better lighting.

It had very thick legs, noticeably thicker than a honey bee's. It was very furry, much more so than a honey bee.

Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, my phone's camera could not focus on something so small. I had to use the video recorder, then capture these still images later.
