Today as I was about to kill a bug on the window, I noticed that it was an amazing color of deep iridescent teal. I stopped, of course. It wasn't the housefly I thought it was. But I couldn't figure out what it was, and even our three resident fly fishermen couldn't identify it.
Leave it to the Queen of Google (me): a halictid bee - now outside. Did you know bees came in so many colors? I had absolutely no idea. And now I shall be thankful it didn't sting me.
eta: I couldn't stop thinking about that color!
