Found in greenhouse. Like a tawny mining bee but with a less hairy abdomen than the others I've seen here.

Do you have another shot from the side that you could add ?

Side view

Sorry, no. It was a bit agitated having been battering itself against the glass for some time (couldn't find the open window or door). I carried it out and took the photo as I opened my hand, anticipating it would fly off immediately, which it did. If I see another one I'll try to take another picture. What is the part of significance (legs?body shape?) to try to get a picture of?

The tip of the abdomen would be significant.
