Detailed Description

Collected by Dave Gruenewald from Emory in the southern piney forests of Georgia, where he is studying forestry regeneration impacts on native bees. This is a rare species, located only in the deep south along the coastal plain, perhaps it is not so rare as we think, but that so few people collect and study bees in this area. In any case, this is the first recent record I have seen. Photo taken by Maggie Yuan. 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.
