Nice find! Although fairly stationary she may move to another flower and do some pollination! :-)
Best.

Nice shot. Looks like Agapostemon virescence. There may be some others out where you are, have a look.

A couple images from our dill plants, which always draw a lot of small flies, wasps, bees, beetles, and everything.
