Ultra Green Sweat Bees in the Cosmos Cupcake White blossoms

October 24, 2017


I don't see Ultra Green Sweat Bees Agapostemon texanus often, but when I do spot them, they are quite a sight to behold. They are native to California, and nest in the soil, usually in bare, flat ground.

spent a long time in the blossoms of this plant.






A male Ultra Green Sweat Bee was lurking around, too.
