Nice! I think this may be what my mystery insect photo on page 3 is.

I think you are right, this is your mystery bee.

It is not always easy to tell from a photo, but this looks correct for a leafcutter bee (family: Megachile). There are hundreds of different kinds of leafcutter bee's, but they are quite common. Honey bees are european, and are introduced for agriculture.
