Halictid Bee

You may have seen these small metallic green bees from time to time.  I think they are pretty much loners, not colonial like honey bees are.  This one was gathering pollen from a Jacob's ladder.  I used a 100mm macro lens to acquire the image. I was filming the Jacob's ladder itself when I noticed the bee. Here again, filming them with a macro lens gives a whole different perspective to their world.
