Mating Ground(Miner/Digger)bees on Upper Flat – March 25 2007


Mating Ground bees #3 on Upper Flat – March 25 2007
Originally uploaded by Camp Naturalist.

Mounds from these solitary miner bees (a.k.a. digger or sand) are all over the ground again. These bees are swarming all over the ground. This is the first time I’ve seen them actually mating.

Ground bees are one of the polinators of the early wildflowers found here at camp.

FYI:  Male bees (all species) can’t sting.
