Can some one identify this Bumblebee?





Not the best picture in the world
Have been experimenting with a video light,
Canon R5 100mm 100mm Macro 1/1600 f 5.6 ISO 800
In a London Garden on Erysimum

Another one, this time with 1/16 power flash 1/160 f11 ISO 320

Blimey 50 views and not even a 'They are horrible'.

Good shots- not easy capturing actively feeding bees on the wing. Think it's actually a male hairy footed flower bee Anthophora plumipes.

The eyes, antennae and hairy legs look wrong for a bumble and it is the time of year for Anthophora plumipes

A side view of the hind legs would confirm. The females haves a long streak of orange, looking much like a pollen load and the males have a yellow one.

It could be a Bee-Fly rather than a Bumble bee.

Not with such long antennae or four wings.

Many thanks for the ID, even if it sort of looks like a Bumble bee acts, like a Bumble Bee, but is not a Bumble bee!
It is very fast, especially on warm days, when it never stops beating its wings, unless if it finds a flower that has a lot of nectar.
The female of the species, perhaps and actually still
