Green Bee Habitable.

This morning we sighted two green bees flying in close proximity, along the edge of a recently cleared bed about to be sown with late turnips.  Thankfully, they hung around in that spot just long enough for us to snap these photos!  The bees are probably members of the family Halictidae, commonly known as "sweat bees."  These bees are an example of a native, beneficial pollinator, and we're so glad to have them!
