Solitary Bee On Black-Eyed Susan - Augochlora pura - Sweat Bee by 

The solitary bees are important pollinators, especially since honey bees have been dying in large numbers. This lovely, green bee is often called a sweat bee.

This picture was taken in August of 2013 in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA. You can read a bit more about these beautiful and interesting bees here:


Did you notice the caterpillar?

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    Great detail in the bee and the flower centre – all surrounded by a blaze of yellow! The bee is unlike any that I have seen – is it native to America?

  • The info says Australia is one of two places they are not found – sigh.
