    Hi Althea - This is a male (notice the elongate antennae!) bee belonging to the genus Lipotriches. There is not enough detail in the images for me to place it to species. Well spotted. Ken

    This bee (?) was caught by the sprinkler and was too cold/wet to move for long enough for me to get a few reasonable shots of it. It is on oregano flowers.
