This was done by a leafcutter bee.  These are common native pollinators in South Carolina.  Leafcutter bees are solitary bees and make their nests in cavities of trees.  They line their nests with pieces of leaves they cut out of nearby vegetation.  Here is a webpage with some more great information.

 

Here is this week’s question:  What happened to this pigweed?
