I was out in my yard putting my beehives on the hive stand I just built and saw this bee on one of the frames. Is this a mining bee? I know every Spring I get a ton of them in my yard but I haven't been able to get a good look at one.
Zone 7A - Southern, MA. Elevation 138 ft.
4 hives: 1 Carniolan/Italian Hybrid, 2 Swarms from that hive and 1 Russian.
