    Looks like it might be a male Megachile perihirta.

    Have yet to see that species yet, but I have a lot of other native pollinators that visit my flowers. I used www.bugguide.net to find him. He looked like he was from the family Megachilidae so all it took was a little looking around until I found a photo of a similar bee. If you would like to see some of my bee photos here is a link to my flickr account http://www.flickr.com/photos/matt-bearup/
