Bee with Red Abdomen - Holcopasites calliopsidis

Bee with Red Abdomen - Holcopasites calliopsidis
Rockvale, Rutherford County, Tennessee, USA
August 19, 2013
This may be the smallest bee I've seen. I thought it was an ant at first. I have more shots than the one I will be posting, but it was hard for me to get a good shot because it was so small and the plant was moving as was it. Please let me know if those are needed. Thanks.
