Unequal Cellophane Bee by Dr.Nick Dorian

Unequal cellophane bees (Colletes inaequalis) are common in early spring across eastern North America where they build nests underground in sandy soils. True harbingers of spring, they visit many early-blooming tree species such as red maple (Acer rubrum), serviceberry (Amelanchier spp.), redbud (Cercis canadensis), and pussy willow (Salix discolor).
