Looks like a carpenter bee to me. Then again, I'm not too good on Ids. Nice shot though. The purple flower looks really nice with the black and white of the bee.

Possibly a mining bee? "Andrena"

I was thinking the (Midget) Mining Bee ~12mm Long, subgenus Micrandrena

I got this earlier this year

Thanks for the replies everyone, i will google up some pics to see if i can get a match.
All are new names to me, but that photo of a mining bee looks a possibility.

regards brian.
