I noticed a native bee in a hedgehog cactus flower and only got one fair shot of it. You can click on it (or any of the pictures) for a larger view.

  Later in the day I was by some desert lavendar and noticed quite a few bees. Honey bees this time.  I took several shots and got a few decent ones. I did notice that the native bee pretty much ignores me and my camera and seems to want to swim in the pollen, whereas the honey bee moves away from me and the camera.  It never seems annoyed by my presence, just wary or even frightened by it. 
Caught this one mid-flight with pretty good resolution.

This may be the sharpest image of the bunch.

and one more for good measure.
