Green Metallic Sweat Bee on the Blanket Flower

Have only seen one honeybee on this flower so far – published a couple of days ago. If there’s a bee on it, it’s going to be one of these… Or a green carpenter bee. They generally run several counter-clockwise circles around the flower in their pollen collection. And I am most fond of the side shots in which you can see their eye. Tho there’s something to be said for a canted face shot, too!
