Shiny little guy

Shiny little guy
NC Zoo , Asheboro County, North Carolina, USA
December 29, 2018
Size: Approx. 1 cm
Spotted on a fence. On first glance, I thought it was a halictid out on a warm day. On further inspection, I cannot even be sure of the order. Very calm, did not attempt flight even when captured.
