Artist's Description

Taken in Tucson, AZ using a Canon Powershot SX110IS

Leafcutter bees in the genus Megachile include 140 species north of Mexico. Females shear neat ovals and perfect circles in leaves, using the pieces to construct barrel-like cells. The cells are stacked end-to-end inside preexisting tunnels in wood or burrows in the ground.
