This bee is in a Prickly Pear Cactus, Opuntia Engelmannii. This is likely a female Chimney Bee in the Diadasia australis species group. The abdomen seems to have a small puncture hole and she doesn't seem to have much pollen yet.

Sexing this genus
John, I noticed that some people, like me, have had a little trouble in this genus, with the sexing of their images, that have no pollen on the legs. This female seems to have less hair than the other one, from yesterday.
OK, I'm submitting the male tonight. Thanks for the assistance!
