Peek-a-Bee (Sweat Bee, Halictidae)

A small solitary bee (perhaps a miner bee) sits inside a yellow dandelion flower, facing forward, one of the petals obscuring half of its face. (In black and white)

Little bees like this one are delightful creatures, purposeful and diligent, solitary and self-contained. I think it is a mason or miner bee, but not sure. Most likely a sweat bee in family Halictidae. (Color version below.)
