Solitary Bee

Megachile sicula balearica


Orange and black bee, with violet wings. We found it on the ground. Rarely flying.

No species ID suggestions


Wonderful! Having several angles definitely helps with identification.

Hi Cindy! Thank you! I uploaded two more pictures. The frontal picture has bad quality, sorry. I had been looking which species could be. Maybe Osmia sp. I don't know.

Very pretty. Would love to see other angles if you have them.
