Sweat Bee on a Zinnia

Sweat Bee – Orange-legged Furrow Bee (Halictus rubicundus) – on a Zinnia

In what might be a taxonomic trainwreck, I’m going to tentatively call this one a Sweat Bee. More specifically, an Orange-legged Furrow Bee (Halictus rubicundus). And it’s on a zinnia.

If I cannot identify something (and you’re sure about what it is) – or if I’ve misidentified something and you can set me straight, please click on the Leave a Comment button there on the left side and tell me what you know.

I may have sneaked over to the neighbor’s yard for this shot.
