Bumble Bee with Green Eyes - Xylocopa virginica

Bumble Bee with Green Eyes - Xylocopa virginica
Baton Rouge - BREC Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, USA
September 9, 2011
This "bumble bee" is the size of a Miner Bee.
Not as big as some bumble bees.

The green eyes caught my attention.
I had about eight shots of this individual, always the eyes were green.
Different angles and on different plants.

Most bees have very dark eyes, almost black.
(or that is what it seems to be to me.)

Other bees that appeared to be the same kind had dark eyes.

Is this a different kind of bee or just happen to have different coclored eyes.
