This post is a follow-on from my recent Perfect Match post. I was greatly taken with the bright, shiny green and yellow colouring of this small bee and how perfectly it complements the colours in the flower.
The photos below show a Sweat Bee (Halictid bee, Augochlorini tribe) exploring the flowers of Purple Milkwort (Polygala sanguinea).

Purple Milkwort can be found in the ground cover layer of meadows, prairies, open fields and woods edges from Nova Scotia west to Ontario in Canada, and in much of the eastern two-thirds of the United States, except Florida.
