This conflict is between a metallic green bee, and a yellow jacket that happened pretty quickly.
It all started when we came upon these cool looking purple wildflowers on the high desert floor. Seams to me like some kind of thistle weed??
I noticed a pretty green metallic bee on one of them just doing what a metallic green bee dose! Then I noticed this yellow jacket on the other side of the stigma of the wildflower. Just did not appear to me that they were paying much attention to each other.
Until the yellow jacket came to the same side of the stigma! The yellow jacket stopped, then saw the metallic green bee!
That darn yellow jacket started to attack! You can see the yellow jacket biting the metallic green bee and the metallic green bee trying to get away!
The metallic green bees wings started flapping and finally flying away leaving the yellow jacket have its own way!!
Moral of this story is? Don't mess with the yellow jacket when you are a peaceful sort !!
