Dabbling in the Most Photogenic Bees

I’m thankful for great temperatures for gardening. See my previous post for the weather report. ; ) I was curious how many pollinators the flowers attract and began to document them. Here is who I spotted this week. As I looked carefully, I realized that many were not bees at all!

  1. Beautiful pics. And I’m just so impressed that you found the names of all of them. I would just have called them little bit, big bee, gray looking bee, bee that reminds me of one that bit me one time. Etc.
