Fun caption!
I recently framed three photos - a bee, a mimic fly, and a mimic beetle. I call it "Bee & Wanna-Bees".

 
I'm waiting for a pair of mimics...
to land on the same leaf. Caption: "Two bees or not two bees? That is the question."

 
I might have used that or something similar.
But, hey, a good line is worth repeating.
