Native Bee???

nickrosesnApril 18, 2014

I set up my DSLR and let it take 700 photos so I could see what bees/insects are visiting the wildflowers I planted. The flowers that are blooming right now are Linaria. I captured at least 2 different types of bees. I think the first bee is Anthidium manicatum the other I have no idea. Any help with identification would be great.

Yes, looks like all native bees.
Not sure, the forth and fifth could be leaf cutter bee,.. there are allot of burrowing ground bees also, do a Google search and see if you can match something.

Thank you. I thought Anthidium manicatum was from Europe so it wouldn't really be a native to the United States.
