Oil-Diggers (Centris)

This large and powerful species is out of reach for a human most of the time, except when it lands on one of the riverbanks to lick salts from the ground – deposited by wild animals or humans.

This one been has been very busy pollinating – the true color is covered by yellow pollen!
