Quite an interesting bee I spotted this week. I've never seen one like this before. According to my searches, it's an Anthophora bimaculata. Now I wish I'd stayed to get more shots of him, but I was melting in the heat.

Wow! Great image. I've never seen one of those in Colorado.
Nice excuse to come to the UK :)
