Native bees? What is this one?
Just really getting into native bees. I want to attract more; but the good news is that I've spotted at least 5 different types. In my picture there are also Italians from hives.
I've identified Agapostemon and Collette bees. Saw plenty of these lovelies last summer on Sunflowers, squash blossoms, and in my sad neglected honeysuckle (it was here when I moved in!)
This very fuzzy bee was all over my Russian Sage. Aside from the big orange stripe across it's middle, I don't really know how to identify it. Any ideas?
