Pollen Covered Bee

While hiking in Red Rock Canyon, Nevada I came across a vibrant purple cactus flower. While admiring it I noticed several bees in and around this one flower, so I decided to photograph them. The bees actually started to fight with each other, as they did not want to share, and this bee was the victor.
