This little bees are extraordinarily beautiful and can be found
on Antelope Island - at least that's where I've seen them the
 most. They like Curlycup Gumweed. © Carol Davis 7-16-2019

Dianthidium curvatum sayi
I thought at first this beautiful little bee might be dead because
 she sat so still
. I got just one picture and then she took off. Luckily, I
got a
good shot. Resin Bees make nests out of pebbles like the one below
 (behind
the pretty spider.)  © Carol Davis, 7-19-2013, Antelope Island

I wonder, is this spider getting paid for watching over
this little nest? © Carol Davis 7-17-2008
