This bee is a Halictid, family Halictidae
Wow, so interesting! I never knew those existed....green bees....
very nice shot
neato are those the ones you can catch with your hands??
I am not sure if you could catch it with your hand, it does look just like a bee, which means it probably stings.
i like the way you captured how covered in pollen he is.
Virescent Green Metallic bees are one of my favorites. Looks like this one has been rolling in the pollen. Very nice shot.
