On pale tailed B. terr. there

On pale tailed B. terr. there is sometimes a narrow band of buff hairs adjacent to the black hair. This bee also appears to be 'robbing'the flower nectaries, puncturing or using holes made by other bees to obtain the nectar, I think B. terr do this because they are short tongued Bb and unable to access the nectaries from the front of the flower.
