Common sweat bees

 A follow-up to my previous post, on nests of the common sweat bee, Halictus.

Here are some pretty photos of common sweat bees foraging, on citrus flowers in Salt Lake City.

Common sweat bees are great bees to look for right now.. they are a little smaller and skinnier than a honeybee, with trim hair bands at the base of each abdominal section.

Thanks to Amy Sibul for the photos!
