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!
