Wonderful! Having several angles definitely helps with identification.

Hi Cindy! Thank you! I uploaded two more pictures. The frontal picture has bad quality, sorry. I had been looking which species could be. Maybe Osmia sp. I don't know.

Very pretty. Would love to see other angles if you have them.
