Here's the bee, collecting pollen. Photo for sale.

Here's the same bee, collecting pollen. His legs were heavy by the time he flew off the thistle flower. As far as I can see from info gathered on the internet, he might be some kind of sweat bee. But I really have no idea! It was interesting to try to find out how to classify a bee. This was the best site I came across.

Click my photo to see a larger version with more detail. The bee is really kind of cute with his white stripes and bright, metallic green color.
