This is a native bee, I donīt know the exact classification, here are known as meliponas, I believe. Maybe somebody can help with ID. Itīs hard to portrait them, are very fast and feeds only a second in each flower.In this opportunity I was lucky.
Taken a sunny and hot day, all december there was enough heat and sun with almost no rains.

I hope you like it, thanks for viewing

Hi Hernan. This is a very colourful picture of the Bee on the flower. You have captured both with good detail and bright colours. Godo detail in the Bee . We can see a the liitle hairs. well done TFS.

Hallo Heran
This is really very beautiful to look at and a great capture. The warmth of the day is portrayed well in this sunny and bright image and it is really a delight to see such close-up of this "wild bee". You have used good light, the focus is super and the whole image is presented in a favourable manner. The details of the fine hairs on the paws, and the striped body are clearly seen. It surely is having a fun time with all the available nectar. Thanks for sharing this sunny and joyful image.
Best regards.

So cute one and I love the sharpness and the sunny colours, very well done, Hernan, good work

Hola Hernan,
Has conseguido unos resulatados muy buenos, tanto por el colorido como por la nitidez, una buena foto, no te puedo ayudar en la ID.
Saludos cordiales.

Hello Hernan,
An impressive macro of this interesting Bee on the yellow flower. Excellent focus on the big eye, fine sharp details and natural colours. I like your composition too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Hernan,

Excellent capture of this solitary bee. Beautiful composition. Great sharpness. Perfect exposure. Very good colours. I would say it is a kind of megachile but I am not 100% sure.
