Several nomad bees on edge of woodland shaw.
No interactions present.
Hi David, I think images 2 and 3 are possibly N. flava, I'm not too sure on image 1 yet.

that was my best guess as well, with the usual caveats!
The second 2 specimens do look like N. flava. Yellow hairs on propodeum. Pair of triangular spots that meet in the middle on tergite 2. Orange tergite 1 and paired red lines on the mesonotum. Just need to see the face (teeth on mandibles and colour of labrum)to be totally certain.
May I ask, where do you get the descriptions of the individual species from, the characters to look out for?
