Nomad Bee

Dear Martin Harvey,

Thank you for your help on identifying my pictured bee, I must have photographed 2 different bees, as one of the Bees entering the nest photographed was definately carrying pollen on rear leg setae,but the bee that emerged photo on the leaf and the bee entering on the ground matches nomad bee,and according to wikipedia nomad bees do not have a pollen carrying scopa.

thank you
