Bee - Andrena cressonii - female

Bee - Andrena cressonii - Female
Richmond Hill, York Region, Ontario, Canada
May 11, 2007
The cherry tree in my front yard bloomed spectacularly this spring, attracting a lot of bees and the occasional Bombyl*ius. I'm unfamiliar with identifying bees, so I'll let somebody with higher caliber tackle this one for me ;-) For starters, I'll guess a Sweat Bee.
