Go to Boston.   

Go the harbor.  

There in the harbor are a string of islands, very used and usually very small. 

They have been made into a National Recreation Area, good, but not the Great Wilderness that would attract a lot of Thoreaus.  But yet, there are plenty of bees out there and here is one.

This one is Triepeolus pectoralis, looking verrrrryyy Goth (enough of those prissy shiny metallic bees).  It lays its eggs in the nests of Melissodes (also very Goth, since it ends up killing the Melissodes babies).  Photo by Kamren Jefferson.
