This little Digger Bee with the large beautiful eyes was in Mercur
Canyon, Tooele County, Utah. So soft looking it seems like it
would be nice to touch. Carol Davis, 9-17-2006

  Digger Bees make their solitary nests in the ground - and you are blessed
indeed if they choose your yard to nest in. Carol Davis 9-18-2016

Anthophora urbana
 A lot of people think honey bees are the only pollinators, but there are lots
of wild bees and insects that do that as well, very unobtrusively. We're
not really dumb enough to think nothing was pollinated in the Americas
before the arrival of the European Honey Bee.  Carol Davis 9-18-2016
