You are right Kevin, this really is an extraordinary and very beautiful bee.
It's colors are really vibrant here and reflecting all that light makes them look even more impressive. I think the green metallic thorax is terrific bit i also love those big eyes - which again are not black as usualy, but have that interesting pattern on them.
A photo well taken - with a great exposure and impeccably sharp details, but also composed superbly with the nice tilted flower and a lovely blurred BG behind the bee.
Bravo and TFS

really very sharp and ... masterwork with respect to light and colour presentation. Particularly, the green metallic head and thorax of the bee is best displayed. Fine and sharp structural details of the flower and of the insect are shown. The whole composition is very attractive.
Best wishes, Peter

The size of the bee compared to the aster flower that it is on gives some idea iof the size of thei Sweat Bee and you have caught it sharply and set it is a fine composition, the green coloring of the bee complementing the aster's color.
Thanks for sharing this nice shot and have a good weekend too!

brilliant colours from a bright autumn sun in this well composed, richly detailed image. That Metallic Green Bea is a most beautiful insect, coming in lustrous colours that would rather be expected from tropical insects, and you have captured that busy insect very well.
Thank you! With best regards,
