I'm most interested in the Bee hiding under the dandelion leaf pointing at us. It has a larger hole than the Furrow Bees in the background. I know there is a bit of forced perspective with the one Bee being further in the background than the other.

Thought I had identified this as a Cuckoo Wasp before, but was not saved. I love the metallic-looking bees and wasps. These colors not exactly common in nature.

I spotted a quite similar individual a year later, posted to BugGuide where it was identified as "Chrysis angolensis" (not yet posted on iNat). However, I don't have the expertise to ID as one-in-the-same.
