Thanks. I appreciate the kind words from down under.
I looked online and found the Halictus. A small bee commonly found throughout North and South America. There's a thousand different species of this bee.

Mr. Dave, I was thinking it would be fun for me to drive down to your area and buy lunch. I will bring my camera stuff. Looks like we are in for another heat wave all week and temperatures will be in the high 90s. Let me know.
