Sleeping on a branch

Male bees sleeping on a branch. The females spend the nights as well as bad weather in their nests but the males have to find a shelter in the open. These are male Eucerini often called Long-Horned Bees. To sleep, the males cling with their mandibles to a branch or stalk (on some you can see the mandible quite well under the greenish shimmering facet eye). These bees live solitary, they build no hives and produce no honey.
