Leafcutter Bee (two photos)
There were a few of these in the mud up Big Cottonwood
Canyon, Salt Lake County, Utah. The males have
"mittens" on their front legs. Identified to species
by Bugguide. © Carol Davis 7-11-2018
This charming bee was having its legs bitten by some ants
seemed more interested in what I was up to.
I call these
the "Mustached Bees" because of the long facial hairs.
They also have beautiful green eyes. © Carol
