Wool Carder Bee

I had not heard of theses bees until I took this photo and researched what was going on. The females use their mandibles to scrape fluff, or "wool", off plant stems to use in their nests. This particular bee is scraping the wool of a Rose Campion in our garden.
Thanks for the comments and votes for yesterdays Aster shot.
