Nomada ruficornis species
These red (or red-orange) Cuckoo Bees with thick
antennae really stand out on most flowers. This one was
in Goshen Canyon, Juab County, Utah.  © Carol Davis 5-5-2019

red Nomada cuckoo bee
I don't see these bees very often but I love to
find them. Cuckoo Bees prefer to have other
 bees take care of their young. You can read about
 them at the Honey Bee Suite. © Carol Davis 5-5-2019
