I shot this on September 15th on a rare day when it wasn't raining:-) I thought this bee species was interesting looking. The holes eaten in the leaf were of course what it is known to do and how it got its name......the continual pouring of rain is preventing me from getting outside to shoot other pictures so I am going back over some that I shot last month in the woods.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

    An awesome close-up of this little guy! It looks like he's carrying a piece of the leaf away here, too. Very interesting image and so very beautiful!!
