Detailed Description

I heart Pickerelweed would read the bumper sticker on this bee as the female pictured here would only feed her babies pollen collected from the interior of marshes with blooming Pickerelweed. This one was collected as part of a survey of Indian Head Naval Base just south of Washington D.C. on the Potomac and, indeed they have freshwater tidal creeks filled with Pickerelweed.
