Another regular to the garden, I get a few different colour variations of these from all black to black and beige.

  1. Those different colours are really interesting and could make an ID very tricky. Those are all great photographs and very helpful as I haven’t seen one yet. This puzzles me a bit because the garden is full of Anthophora plumipes at the moment and I am always on the outlook for bees.
