Sweat Bee
  Lasioglossum sisymbrii

Spring has really not sprung to its springiness as yet but I did find this Sweat Bee lounging on some old
Common Yarrow on Antelope Island.  I was able to take all the pictures I wanted because I don't think
it could fly -- it had a wonky wing.  Carol Davis 3-28-2013

This photo shows the damaged wing and I guess it was just a matter of time before some predator put it out
of its misery.  Sweat Bees are cute little bees so if they land on you when you're sweating, try not to
 squash them - all they want is a little lick (they are good pollinators, too). Carol Davis 3-28-2013
