Quite literally - this one on the handle of my front door, and a dozen or so burrows in the flower bed next to the doorstep with bees bringing in what appeared to be bright yellow pollen.

Yellow-legged Mining Bee

Thanks Colin

I had photographed what was later identified as this species nearby earlier in the year - but thought mentioning that might bias views on the ID of this one.

Looks like they are doing well in my garden in this dry weather.

Hi Alan

I could be wrong perhaps Stuart Eucera etc will confirm They are tricky at the best of times Andrena - this ones legs are not as yellow as I would like ! B hypnorum has had a good innings this year in Yorks
