Many pollinators like our Mountain Mint, and Bumble Bees frequent our Monarda. Can anyone provide IDs?

The first one looks like Pseudodynerus quadrisectus, a potter wasp -

The second and third images are of bees in the family Halictidae ('sweat bees'), and the last image is a bumble bee (Bombus sp.) - http://www.bumblebee.org/NorthAmerica.htm

Flapdoodle, thanks for the IDs. Any ID on the bee in the lower right of the first photo or the species of bumble bee in the last photo?

The bee in the first image (sorry, I overlooked it) - appears to be another halictid. Unfortunately, I don't know the bumble bee species right off, but if I find a bit of time, I'll look into it...
