Anthophora urbana

I heard this guy (ok girl) buzzing around on the porch. She was larger in size, and had an awkward way of sort of bumbling around that made me realize she certainly wasn't one of our bees.  Plus, she had a very loud buzzing, more like a fly then a bee.

She moved so quickly, that I am shocked I even was able to capture her with my phone.  

I quick search online identified her (actually, it might be a him) as a Anthophora urbana, a large digging bee, or maybe an Amegilla.  I'm not exactly sure.  But pretty cool!

A Garden Visitor

After a nice bout of rain last night, the morning was cool and wet.  A perfect time to get in the garden and do some serious weeding.

May Garden Update

This has not been my most successful garden this year :o( Maybe it is the excess of rain, I don't know, but I haven't gotten much. I guess every garden has good years and off years. As always, my goal is to learn from this year so next year is better, right?
