How about

 
Thanks
That looks like it Beatriz. Appreciate your help. I just happened to check back on these photos and saw your comment. I did not receive an e-mail alerting me of it.

I have never seen one of these bees before. It was quite beautiful and impressive. Do you know if it is male or female?

I will move it to the proper page.

Thanks again,
Bob

 
Sweet!
Nicest set of images I've seen of this species, and a female, too:-)

 
Thanks Eric
I added the gender to the ID.
