Busy Bees Use Flower Petals for Nest Wallpaper

This nest holds a single egg!

I found this amazing story over at NPR !

Its all about a rare solitary bee that makes nests by plastering together flower petals!  Can you imagine?!

An egg laid on top of nutrients.

This is an amazing story by Kathleen Masterson .  And an amazing discovery, by two seperate teams, on the same day, in Turkey and Iran!  Make sure to check this out!

Multiple nests of the O. avoseta bee nestled in the ground.

So super amazing!  Wow, life is thrilling!
