Hairy Footed flower bee (Anthophora plumipes) *Female

This to me is my favourite early bee , its comical flight movements and how now and again it seems to come and check you out . The garden is buzzing with these at the moment mostly the brown males with this single female. When they see her they seem to knock her of the flower she is feeding. They love the hyacinths and pulmonaria.
