Observation - Flying Jigsaw - UK and Ireland. Description: Crocosmia leaf selected by Leafcutter bee as nest construction material. Tender rose leaves nearby

Crocosmia leaf selected by Leafcutter bee as nest construction material. Tender rose leaves nearby were also used, and seem to be a very common resource. I'd guess the Crocosmia next to the rose was a convenient second choice in a nice secluded patch of garden.
