The Beesness

The butterflies have been a bit slow on the uptake this year, but there are a lot of bees about. Including the beautiful “green ones” that you can see in both the pictures below. My best “wikipedia” guess is they are members of the genus Agapostemon —unfortunately I didn’t look closely enough to use this really cool key to species.
