I've been able to identify only 5 of these types in my area. Might be due to the fact that my neighbor has several hives in the area and the competition might be too great.

Very unexpected, although I am aware there are different kinds of bees, I don't think I would be able to recognize them at first glance.

I'm not sure how many diffferent kinds of bees we have in Nebraska. I'll have to pay attention a little more to see if I can itentify some of the different kinds.

Very cool. I can only identify three species in my area. But it's really nice to finally know what to call them.

I loved reading about these bees. We have so many different kinds here. I had no idea about the squash bees! Got to keep a lookout for those.

Don't be surprised if you find some that don't quite match these. There are many more and bees that are fly mimics, and flies that are bee mimics.

Good post -- I'm raising native Western Blue Mason Bees for our home garden. They're extremely kid-friendly, too.

Nifty article! The pics are great. I am ashamed to say I didn't realize how many different kinds of beese there are.
