Detailed Description

An uncommonly collected species whose status is largely unknow because people don't spend enough time swimming in the mud to look at the bees coming to Pickerelweed. There are 3 eastern uncommon species all from different genera who are specialists on this plant...this is one, and was collected in Maine by Samantha Gallagher. So get out there and see if you can find some more. Photography by Ashleigh Jacobs. Photography Information: Canon Mark II 5D, Zerene Stacker, Stackshot Sled, 65mm Canon MP-E 1-5X macro lens, Twin Macro Flash in Styrofoam Cooler, F5.0, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 200. USGSBIML Photoshopping Technique: Note that we now have added using the burn tool at 50% opacity set to shadows to clean up the halos that bleed into the black background from "hot" color sections of the picture.
