Different Green Metallic – Double Penstemmons

My bee identification skills are abysmal. Very different green metallic bee today. Note the abdomen vs. yesterday’s bee. The one yesterday was dark and light striped – whereas today’s is metallic. Both neat for sure. Also like the the blossoms side-by-side. Such pretty things – both the bees and the flowers. The pink with the green is a neat touch, too.

Bee 017 – Bombus fervidus on a Penstemmon

At least I think that’s what the bumble is. Just getting ready to take flight. The penstemmon is a fun one – the smaller bees just disappear for a while inside. The larger look like they’re holding on to their hat.
