blue bees and angelica

a striking blue and black bee, feeding on wild angelica. I am not sure what sort of bee it is but there are a lot of them in the woods at present. Angelica seems to attract a very wide range of flying insects. There also appears to be a minute winged insect sitting on the bee's left wing.

Here on Long Island we have yellow jackets and the hives have closed...the stragglers are viciously trying to scramble and sting as many unsuspecting people as they can before they die off! It's treacherous!
