Colletes inaequalis, the cellophane bee, is the first bee out and about I have seen this year. Needless to say, I was pretty excited. A friend showed me a nesting aggregation on campus, and I spent the better part of an hour crawling around on my belly taking photos. It was right next to a bus stop, so I can only imagine what the people coming and going must have thought of me. Oh well! Science!
