Hi Sckel, congrats for this amazing picture. Unfortunatelly I recommend to you to let the identification to genus (Euglossa). There are several species in the genus and many of them are almost identical, so, until you identified the bee with a stereoscope, its better to say is just an Euglossa sp.

Thanks Tiz. The plant in which bees are feeding, is a medicinal shrub (Plectranthus barbatus). The juice of the leaves is very bitter. I never thought these flowers attract bees green . Bees yellow do not like these flowers. I took a week to make these photos, because bees get very hectic when you are approaching. They don't bite. They come very close to your face and look directly into his eyes. :)
