Hi Carletta,
Happy retirement... The Rudbeckia & the Green Bee is a perfect entry for MYM. Thanks for sharing. Feel free to visit my blog and check out my post as well. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

My Amoeba says, right conclave, wrong member. This is a wasp. I said to Amoeba, whatever it is, it's pretty, but you know how scientists are ....

This is a lovely pic. I could be biased. Daisies are my favorites.

Actually, it looks like it is a bee. Specifically, a small carpenter bee, genus Ceratina. The small size and narrow body fooled me. But what do I know? I specialize in algae and protozoa ...

A green bee...never heard of one before. I love the clear yellow in the rudbeckia.

Raven said...

Rudbeckia seems like the wrong name for a yellow flower. Never heard of a green bee before... Interesting.

Connie said...

Nice yellow flower and I like how the background looks too.

Thom said...

That is fantastic :)

I've never seen such a bee. It's especially nice when enlarged.

I'd just call that a daisy, Carletta! Thanks for the real name! Great shot! :)

Rose said...

I like this one a lot, too!

A green bee? That's a first one for me. Thank you for a great capture, and thank you for adding to my little knowledge of bees. :D
