California Metallic Green Bee

Agapostemon californicus


Green bee with gray-green eyes. The wings are amber. Very fast flier and stays away from people. You can see the loads of pollen on the back legs that this bee has in the first few images.


Loved the Perez's Sea Lavender, African Daisy and Bottlebrush in the backyard!
