Osmia, perhaps?

Description:

After a day with my first damselflies of the new season, I returned home to find this unusual (for me) little character enjoying the rare sunny day in my garden.
I think it's a bee and it looks very like Chinery's Osmia rufa but the book continues, "There are many similar species." No surprise there, then.
I'm sticking with suggesting Osmia.

Another one.

I don't know what this is but it looks as if it might be the same as whatever it is that I've just uploaded for an ID too! One ID may lead to another!
