It's an Halictidae, Iooks like an Augochlora

I agree with that.

Looking at some photos, Dan, I think I'd go with Augochloropsis.

At least we've got it narrowed down to a family. Let's see if we can get the exact species now!

It looks coverd with pollen.

I was going to say the same thing. I've never seen a green bee. I found the same family as well and saying it is maybe Augochlorella, Augochlora, or Augochloropsis.
Welcome to Noah from me too.

Google's a wonderful thing. :D Looks like family Halictidae (, possibly Agapostemon sp. And welcome to Project Noah. :)
