Native Bees

I've been learning about Native Bees recently and want to put some focus on them too.  Like me, Honey Bees are a European import so since I live in Vancouver it seems only fair to celebrate the bees that are truly indigenous to this part of the world.  Yesterday I was in Stanley Park and I saw lots of native bees foraging on the flowers there.  I hadn't known much about them till recently and still don't know a whole lot but its so fun to see these tiny little bees- if I didn't know what to look for I would have thought they were flies!  Hoping some photos will follow soon... just waiting for another sunny day!
