The last time I showed you sweat bees, it was really hoverflies. This one, however, is a real sweat bee. Today I learned that most sweat bees, family Halictidae, have metalic bodies. This one only had a green thorax, and the color didn't show very well in the pictures I took. It flashed bright lime green in the sunlight. The abdomen is yellow striped.
This is probably Agapostemon virescens, the Bicolored Sweat Bee, because there aren't many that have different colored thorax and abdomen.
I'd really like to show you something on the trailer, and believe me, I worked my tail off. I stayed up half the night (and then couldn't sleep most of the rest of it). Worked all day long. Made really good progress on three projects, but nothing is ready to show you yet. And, I managed to do a little bit of editing.
Shower and bed coming up. I'm beat.
