This slim robber ( Dioctria hyalipennis ) captured a small bee on my goatsbeard plant today.

Great photo, Danny! That is one tiny bee!!

True enough Stu.  The plant is just starting to flower, but there were quite a few tiny bees and a few larger ones, which were quite small as well.

I didn't know bees came so small!  Love bugs on flowers....beautiful shot Danny!

Thanks Nancy.  Yes, you can find lots of tiny bees on flowers this time of year.  Lasioglossum spp.and Perdita might go unnoticed because they can be as small as 2 - 3 mm in length.

I love images like this with the background ... nice one Danny!
