Bee

    Newer Older

    Always lucky when you're demonstrating taking macro photos to kids when you pull off a good one...

    At first I thought honeybee but this looks more like another mining bee but a different species. Anyone help? Andrena tibialis or andrena haemorrhoa?

    Larger original is available (3747x2489) as PSD so can be any format.

      Its certainly an Andrena. I haave problems with working out the size of this but suspect it just may be Andrena haemorrhoa

      Was about the size of a honeybee if not slightly smaller which nudged me in that direction.

      I'd go for A. haemorrhoa at that size

      Hey every one, is thinking it may even be Andrena clarkella, but there are so many similarities between mining bees, heres the link to some other pictures of the Andrena clarkella:

      But then there is also the Adrena nitida:

      Bees arent my strong point but hopefully this is pointing in the right direction.
