Order Hymenoptera – Ants, Bees, Wasps, Sawflies

These are families in the Order Hymenoptera.  Each photo is a link to insects I’ve seen in that family.  I’ve had a lot of help with these identifications – from James Trager (ants), Heather Holm (bees), and from the great folks at Bugguide, and on the Facebook page: Pollinators on Native Plants.  I’m continually working on identifications, so I’m including ‘unknowns’ and partially identified insects here too in hopes that I’ll figure them out someday.
