Two further photos in Notes Top Right

The beautiful green Halictid Bee females were back today. They were very hyper , barely stopping on the flowers. But they did love the insides of the Moonflowers !

I like your series of pictures of this bee very much. The green metallic sheen on the bee is so beautiful.

Thankyou George... but its the old Cybershot DSC-HX100V... not the a65 ... the Cybershot is what you see the macros on here from for 99.99% of the pics... for now...

This is great. I don't think I have seen one of these types of bees before. Are they a native?
