User's notes

This bee is the size of a honey bee and looks simular to a honey bee, but doesn't forage on the flowers like a honey bee, also one of the bees was a lot smaller.

The females are busy, busy, busy unlike most European Honeybees and they carry pollen without moistening it with nectar. The smaller individual may have been a male (unless it was carrying pollen).

Thank you Michael, the smaller bee didn't stay long enough to get any images, as you say so busy and flower to flower constantly.
