For some reason, honey bees seem to be really hard for me to recognise. This one seems extremely fluffy, which confused me.

Wing venation

If you google "Honey Bee wing pattern" you will get a good starting point. They also have an expanding rear leg which they only share with Bumbles. So excluding Bumbles you can tell them apart from other bees. HTH
