Another Black and White Bee

As light began to fail (hence the grainy photo) I stumbled across another beautiful species of black and white bee at Rowney Warren today, this one being an especially boldly marked Melecta albifrons (probably). Will need to return in better light to get a better snap.

They aren't as beautiful in behaviour however as they are cleptoparasites of the common bee Anthophora plumipes snapped earlier at Fenlake Meadows
