In fulgid glory we present one of the ornaments of nature, Euglossa dilemma, one of the orchid bees.  Does the United States have any orchid bees?  No., I mean Yes.  It has this species (found on Key Biscayne) that has snuck into the U.S. from Central America.  It seems that it thrives on all the exotic plantings that now make up the landscape in most of South Florida.  If you are going to ruin all the native habitat then you might as well bring in some Christmas ornaments I suppose.
