Metallic green bee found gathering pollen in little garden. Good tempered, non-aggressive. Resembles a sweet bee, only bigger with remarkable coloring.
Found in small garden, daisies, rose. Have also spotted them on dandelions.
I have never seen a bee like this before prior to this year. I have seen 1 other earlier this spring. Father stated he has never seen one like this as well. If someone could help identify it for me, that would be awesome!
