I only saw my first tiny Green Metallic Bee a few years ago. Before that I was totally unaware of their existence…and not blissfully unaware either. When I first saw one I was amazed. What a creature. So small. So shinny. So green. So metallic. I had to google the creature to find out what it was. So okay, finding out it was called a “Green Metallic Bee” was bit of a let-down. I expected something more exotic maybe…but still, they are fascinating creatures. Combine Green Metallic Bees with the brief beauty of Wood Lily, and it is almost too much to bear. 🙂 Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode. 1/500th @ f4 @ ISO 640. Processed in Polarr.
