Macro photography image of a Sweet Bee hard at work conquering the top of the coneflower. Photograph was taken at the Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center and Wildlife Sanctuary in Worcester, MA on a late morning in early July.
From Wikipedia: The Halictidae are a cosmopolitan family of the order Hymenoptera consisting of small (> 4 mm) to midsize (> 8 mm) bees which are usually dark-colored and often metallic in appearance. Several species are all or partly green and a few are red; a number of them have yellow markings, especially the males, which commonly possess yellow faces, a pattern widespread among the various families of bees. They are commonly referred to as sweat bees (especially the smaller species), as they are often attracted to perspiration; when pinched, females can give a minor sting.
