Svastra sp. (Long-Horned Bee (nonspec.)).
| We have many of these Long-Horned Bees (Svastra sp.) flying around our petunias and lantanas. Although they have been there for weeks, it took me a long time to shoot a good photo. They are pretty fast and only stop for seconds while taking nectar. This genus has 14 species in our area, which are all robust and hairy. |
