Bee on Copper Mallow - Epeolus americanus

Bee on Copper Mallow - Epeolus americanus
Bent County, Colorado, USA
May 29, 2014
This very small bee was taken on Copper Mallow at Raven's Nest Nature Preserve, SPLT on the plains at ~ 4051' elevation. The image is not sharp enough to allow more cropping. I will post an image of wing venation. Any help with its ID is greatly appreciated.
