Believe this to be a Cuckoo Bee of the genus Nomada. There are toooooo many species for ID. They lay their eggs in the nests of other bees. Seen on the Rock Road near Minto, May 5, 2018.  Very small ... maybe 3/16" - 1/4" long.

Definitely a Nomada sp., JD.  And I agree, very, very hard to take to species level.
