Mining Bee
Genus Melandrena or Tylandrena

Tylandrena or Melandrena mining bee
I found this good-sized Mining Bee attached to a wall at Strawberry Reservoir.
I took quite a few pictures and it
just didn't seem to care.  It was a beautiful
bee - so pristine!  Species determined by Bugguide. © Carol Davis 6-3-2013
