Evidence of Adult Megachile by The-Dude-L-Bug Evidence of Adult Megachile by The-Dude-L-Bug
As I was removing the sawfly larva, I noticed leaves with significantly different damage.
I was thinking the bigger rounder cut-outs looked more like the work of Megachile genus of Leaf Cutter bees...
Sure enough, one flew right past my face, landed on a leaf & began it's cutting.

Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to grab my camera to catch it in the act.

I hope you get a shot of one soon! I've only seen leaf cutter bees in my yard a couple of times, but now I know how to check if they are collecting leaf bits :D

Haha, it's fine :) lately, my corner of the internet has been full of puns. H-I've never been known to wax poetic, but I can comb through my vocabulary for a few buzz-words.

Haha, I have my moments, but I usually have to think about it. I tend to bumble over words in face-to-face conversations.
