Detailed Description

A late season Nomada, this is Nomada placida. It (like all Nomada) is a nest parasite of something. But what? Given its dates of occurrence it may be some of the late season Andrena. Nomada in the fall are always rare and of interest ....fyi. Collected on Warrior Mountain in Maryland. 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.
