Hi There,

I just posted a couple of pix in the Gallery and I'm hoping someone can ID the little guys for me.

Small Carpenter Bee (Ceratina Subgenus Zadontomerus)

The link below is very useful in identifying bees/wasps.

In any case, it's doing a wonderful job pollinating - just look at all the pollen stuck to the hairs on the underneath side of the thorax and back leg (in the photo of the single bee).
