This little "sweat bee" (Lasioglossum sp.) was busy in the flower and when I approached, it turned around as if to warn me.

Great banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
