In my mostly native sand prairie garden -- a gathering of cuckoo bees clutching dead stems with their mandibles, a few inches above the ground. Maybe Triepeolus lunatus males, but I'm not sure. Though the photos are less than ideal due to the low light conditions, I felt the behavior depicted was interesting. At least four bees were in the grouping, and it seemed they sometimes tussled for the best perch.
