the colors on the eyes depend on the angle of the lights and is never used in bee taxonomy

Juan,
Could one of these be a Tetragonisca angustula?

Is it correct ? If it is correct, it´s different from this one, because of color of the eyes. Anyway, I will try to take another macro tomorrow of this bee. That´s a lot of them here.
