Default What kind of bee is this?

I'm curious what type of bee this is. I hope you can tell from my photo.

Most likely one of the 'sweat bees' in the family Halictidae. See Halictus farinosus photo - Tom Murray photos at pbase.com for an example.

I see bees like that in our yard. On the foxglove beard tongue.
