New for this female Mason Bee at least, this is actually the second year that I've put this solitary bee house out. Really happy to have two different species of solitary bee nesting in it.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on Kaiser adjustable flash shoes). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: I spotted this critter sleeping early in the morning and waited for the sun to warm her up enough so she could get active. Once she came to the entrance I looked for interesting compositions and took a lot of frames.

I've never heard of a solitary bee house before.  That's very cool!  Did you build it or buy it?

I bought that one. I've asked a friend who does wood working to build me a bigger one.
