Hello
I am putting a small website together and would like to correctly identify anything that I post. I was actually taking a close up of the flower when it landed just before I pressed the shutter. Hope someone can help me out and identify what this is.

Thanks
Stew

Bee
I found one today and after doing some research I found that I had a leaf cutter bee(Megachile rotundata) in my outdoor stereo speaker. It looks much like the one you have pictured.
