Agapostemon

Agapostemon

This is a drawing of an Agapostemon virescens I did a few months ago, a solitary bee often called a metallic green sweat bee.   As the name implies, it’s very colorful in person- Specimen Photoit’s head and thorax are metallic green and its hairy legs can be bright yellow. I haven’t figured out how to add color to my drawing yet, but have been experimenting with colored pencil and photoshop.  We’ll see what happens.
