Native bees

Here are some pics of native bees and the tunnels that they cap with chewed up leaves, resin or other materials.  To be entomologically correct, the bees in the red flower are not a tunnel nesting species, they nest in the ground.  But it will give you an idea of what native bees look like compared to honey bees.

My friend Anna is a bee expert and helped me with design for the little critters.
