A (seldom seen) Male Leafcutter Bee

Here's a very handsome little fellow! The rarely seen male Leafcutter Bee (genus Megachile). I hardly ever see males of this bee.
Watching him, near the Sweet Pea flowers in the backyard. He would make a short flight, always landing on the exact same spot on the fence; grooming himself. He paused for additional pics (after being released), before flying off...

...Minor enhancements applied.
