I was absolutely thrilled to see my first Montana bees of the year this past weekend in Sypes Canyon, which is a beautiful location near Bozeman, Montana. In fact, I saw five bees but this guy took the cake. Anthophora pacifica is a species that one friend referred to as “The Clydesdale of Bees.” Take a look at his fuzzy feet! I think the name is perfect.
