I noticed a bee cutting pieces off my rose pedals and flying off with it then returning for another piece yesterday and today.  It was driving me crazy, I have never heard of this before so I had to look it up.  Thanks for the info! By the way I live in Northern Calif. on the coast.

I looked this up because I saw the bee on the show Elementary and was curious. Very interesting. Thank you.
