Adult, male
Sex and adult/immature information are useful, especially when using advanced search. So it is a good idea to fill in those data fields when you have that info. I did it for you this time, but I suggest that you go over your other images and edit them.

Moved from ID Request.

Agapostemon male
A. texanus is a likely candidate but I'm not certain of species

this would apply to all of your recent bee pics.

Please crop your images closer to "just the bug". Only you and the editors can see your full-size images. To everyone else this is a nice picture of a flower, but not so much of a bug. You can click "edit" to replace an image.
