Digger Bee
Anthophora urbana

hairy legs
This little digger bee with the beautiful eyes was resting in a flower in the coolness of the morning
on Antelope Island. They are not aggressive, unless you disturb their underground nest, and help
pollinate your garden . A lot of people think honey bees are the only pollinators, but there are lots
of wild bees and insects that do that when honey bees are scarce. © Carol Davis, 9-17-2006
