Male Osmia?
Male, family Megachilidae, and probably a species of Osmia. You may want to wait for Dr. Ascher's return to confirm that.

 
washington bees
Well, he charged me to find some more Washington bee pics. Doesn't look like I found anything *too* interesting, but I did find a good half dozen (new ones for me!) this last week. The hunt continues!! :)

 
Osmia male
an interesting species (hence hard to identify)
