Beautiful.

Could that last one possibly be a long-horned bee? They seem to be “furrier” than the carpenter bees and their wings appear to be opaque instead of transparent. It’s kinda hard to tell since I can’t clearly see the back or wings of the one in your photo.

Edit: Quick question—were you using a macro lens or a zoom?

re: #2 CuriousLurker

P.S. Here’s another example, and another (from Pennsylvania!), and here are the Google Images results for a bunch more from the same Melissodes bimaculata sub-genus. Now if you’ll excuse me, I found some awesome bee pics to share up in the main thread…

Not the bees!

What? Somebody had to make that reference. Its an iconic so-bad-its-good line.

The long-horned bee looks like an excellent potential match on the photo.

Macro setting on a Nikon 3200 and one of the standard lens. Results are a bit hit or miss at times since the insects move, the wind shifts the flowers, and sometimes the lens thinks I want to focus on something other than the insect.
