Four male bees sleeping on a sunflower. I guess solitary males do not have a nest (if you are a male, do not be solitary :) These bees are identified to be Melissodes spp (sub genus Apomelissodes), in the family Apidae, subfamily Eucerini. This genus may be listed under Anthophoridae: Anthophorinae in some references. Identification by Gary Parsons. Zach's back yard, Okemos, MI. July 27, 2003 (8:06 pm).
