Nice detail. That bee is on the job - covered in pollen with a good sized pollen basket. :lol:

Cool weather and partly cloudy skies create a stop and go environment for most solitary bees. This European Wool Carder Bee was semi-active so I was able to get a shot without its mandibles clamped onto a plant stem. Notice the red "thread". This species builds its nests out of plant fibers, so odds are this is a female.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (almost 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, +1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

I think it MAY be a Margined Leatherwing Beetle, perhaps a juvi?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

You nailed it! Nice detective work! (I guess mine wasn't guarding a brood. It says they lay their eggs in soil)
