This female Long-horned Bee, found gathering nectar on Antelope Island on curly-cup gumweed, is very hairy as are all the bees in the
Eucerini.  They are named Long-horned Bees because the males have extra-long antennae. Aren't those eyes cool?  Look at all the
pollen on those legs!  Carol Davis, 7-27-2008
