Thought you might like to see this gorgeous black and white (books call it grey, but its not really lol) bee from my garden last weekend.

This one is Andrena cineraria which I have never seen before. I do hope I get more of these in the future as I think they are gorgeous.

Beautiful indeed! Black & white is a lovely combination that we've never seen. What plant was it pollinating Linda? Thanks for posting. Jean & Graham

Its a Mexican Orange I think. There are about 3 of these around the garden, this one is in the back garden. Loads of flies, beetles, bees etc love feeding on it.

It was on this shrub, when we first moved in in 2006, during that hot summer, we had a swarm of Silver Y's one evening on it. Havent seen that happen since though lol.
