Found The First Solitary Bee Of The Year

I came across the first Solitary Bee of this year. It was near a flower pot (that had only potting soil in it). On the back porch (at my Sister-in-law's house). Well, I went ahead with my usual routine: Capturing it (temporarily) for it's photo shoot : )

It is a Halictus, commonly called a "Sweat Bee"

When it comes to my latest obsession (Bees & Wasps) - I have already amassed a modest library. And this little guy is a fairly common species. Here are just a couple of macro shots I took, while releasing it.

Cute little thing!
