Mason Bee

Anthidium sp.


Anthidium have a very special way to sleep, they sleep with their jaw hanging to a stem of grass or a twig of a bush. Their jaw is very strong, since even considerably tossed by the wind, it does not fall and continue to sleep.


It rested on a twig in a fallow calcareous edge of mixed forest at 500m above sea level.
