Moved from Wool Carder Bee.

Anthidium oblongatum
not manicatum; note orange tegulae. A. manicatum does visit white flowers. Color of flowers visited is not an acceptable criterion for identifying Anthidium.

 
Male tegulae?
Are the tegulae on male A. manicatum also black? This image on wiki commons has me confused. Thanks.

Anthidium manicatum?? (Megachilidae)
usually dont visit white flowers.

 
white, turning to pink
it could be I just over-exposed the photo a little. This Sedum actually starts pale green, turns to pale pink and gradually gets darker, passing through a deep burnt red, ending in almost a dark brown. But the bugs seem to love it anytime before the frost :)
