The picture was taken at the Bodensee (Lake Constance) in Southwestern Germany in June 2019. I tried to Google "Bee with brown fur", but the only thing that came up was a red mason bee, and the resulting pictures didn't look quite like this photo

Since I was sent the photo, I don't know the actual size of the insect.

strange bee-like animal with orange/brown fur sitting on wood

  • $\begingroup$ Definitely a bee, I'd guess from the family apidae. Do you have other photos? Getting a good ID will probably require a sharper photo. $\endgroup$ – Michael Jun 28 '19 at 5:59
