Nomada

Going on general appearance I'd guess this is Nomada flava, but I can't be certain as there are some similar ones including N. panzeri. N. ruficornis is quite similar but usually has less yellow on the abdomen and more orange on the head, but the extent of these colours can vary quite a lot in Nomada, making them harder to identify from photos.
