What is this crazy cool and super tiny bee? Some sort of Lasioglossum?!
I spent a lot of time on a little island in the middle of a busy highway photographing these little guys
Love the blue eyes
Here’s a male of the same species
How I know they’re the same species
Different tiny bee I only have one blurry photo of
This native honeybee, nectar robbing (honeybees can’t make these cuts so there was probably a carpenter bee here)
Here’s a carpenter! She’s filthy with pollen
And she has that same stripe of pollen down her back that I am coming to associate with Impatiens glandulifera…maybe she found a nearby patch? I didn’t see any but I am not a bee
Honeybee on some sort of squash
Echium vulgare on the beach was attracting a ton of bees, I could’ve stayed there for hours, but I only had five minutes
Cute beach body!
Artsy bee butt
Blurry bee…this is also my strategy for having a beach body…just be as blurry as possible!
