Sweat bee (Augochloropsis metallica)

Another colourful sweat bee in my garden. The one I previously posted is quite red, this one is a shiny green. When you get a lot of them together they flash and dance in the sun like tiny little green jewels.

Un très beau camouflage, un joli spécimen dans un décor approprié! V

Fascinating. I like the metallic sheen and the tiny yellow hairs. "V"
