    They’re such tiny little bees, currently swarming the area in great numbers. This particular species didn’t seem at all interested in my sweat, though. Imagine being more interested in nectar on a flower bloom than my hairy sweaty arms and legs! Unbelievable!

    I have seen them before, and they are amazingly tiny. That metallic green just shines out though, can’t miss it. The ones I see here are almost always on sunflowers.

    Here they much prefer the rudbeckia. The sunflowers get all the big round bumble bees (both white and yellow). If it wasn’t so much of a pain to get up to them (ladder), I’d have more pictures of bumble bees on sunflowers.

    The Green Sweat Bees reformed? I saw them once in some toilet (musicians’s slang for pub venue) in, as I recall, London, but about the only thing I can now recall is they were quite hyperactive, buzzing all about the stage.

    The green colour is surprising to a eurolubber. Our bees prefer more subdued vest colours.

    The details of the green vest are intricate.
