OSMIA AVOSETTA is a solitary species of BEE, and is unique in its use of flower petals to construct nests for its larvae. The female digs shallow tunnels in the ground consisting of one or two chambers, each of which it then covers with flower petals spackled together with mud. It then places larval food in each chamber. To close up the nest, the bee bends the inner layers of petals toward each other and spackles the petals together with mud. Each one is a petal masterpiece.
