Solitary bee on Blackthorn

On a match the picture basis, it looks a bit like a Tawny mining bee maybe.

    terraincognita96 Thanks so much- I had seen your comment and ID on afterforty‽'s photo earlier about another Andrena species & hoped you would have a look at this when I commented on you picture earlier!
    How do you distinguish this from Andrena varians?
  • Steve Burt 3y

    Terrific detail on the entire body. I rally like the rufous color you have captured on the thorax. One can see wht they call you the macro master!! We have wild bees in North America, but these look different.

    I haven't see bees like that either, must look it up if they have them in Australia. Great shot and detail, the lace wings and furry orange body, quite interesting.
