Leaf-cutter Bee & Her Ball - Megachile - female

Leaf-cutter Bee & Her Ball - Megachile - Female
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
March 22, 2015
Size: 14mm
This bee is one of many Mason Bees, that are living in a vent, above the front door. I have been filming them, as they come and go, but wanted a few clear images, for the ID. All of these images were shot in the shade, in the late afternoon. The ball that she was carrying, looks like a bunch of flower petals.
NOTE: The left ocellus is missing from the center of her head! Can you see it?
Please confirm, move or frass these images. Thanks for your help!
