    Watching the bees on the "live forever" plant yesterday. I saw this bee. A few pictures I thought i would share. I don't have a positive id. Im in south central Kansas, near Wichita.

    Looks like a stocky bee, from the genus melissodes, possibly psilomelissodes or tachymelissodes.

    I saw this non-bee pollinating my basil. It looks somewhat like a yellow jacket.P1.jpg

    Looks like what I drove halfway across Tompkins County this past June for a friend only to learn it looks identical to what we call a Mason Bee.
