Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Leaf-cutter Bees/Mason Bees - European Wool Carder Bee
Class:Insecta Order:Hymenoptera Family:Megachilidae Genus:Anthidium


I see these cool little bees hovering around Loosestrife and Mint blooms in the summer. At first glance they look like Syrphid Flies because of the way they hover around the flowers. Very hard to catch them sitting still.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
