Honey bee on Ivy

Honey bee on Ivy

Observation - Honey bee on Ivy - UK and Ireland. Description: Found close to where an Ivy Bee (Colletes hederae) was seen a few days before - this one feeding on Ivy flowers. But the abdomen markings seemed pale and the bee seemed to be quite well worn - so perhaps not freshly emerged.
