Don't try this at home

I've posted pictures of bees sleeping by clamping onto foliage with their mandibles before. This male (13-antennal segments) Nomada was taking the opportunity to give itself a cleaning while waiting for the sun, which never showed (yet again!) today at Mowsbury Hill LNR in Bedford. You can see one of the mandibles actually goes right through the field maple leaf.
