Tiger-striped Metallic-green Bee on Flower

I love photographing flowers and I got excited when this tiny bee landed on one; its color catching my eye. Even close up the bee was small and the flower,from a weed along the roadside. Nevertheless I had never seen a bee this color before and I took close-up shots. However, it wasn’t until I cropped the photo that the intricacies of both flora and fauna were magnified so beautifully.
