There are dozens of species of Halictid (sweat) bees many of they brilliant metallic black, green or blue. Most, however, are solitary, which may explain why not many might be seen in any one place. They live in burrows, and visit flowers for pollen and nectar.

Nice shots.

Default Smaller then a Bumble Bee............

These guys are smaller then a bumble bee. Then are shinny and they will bite or sting.
Nice contrast.
