A female European wool carder bee (Anthidium manicatum) foraging on Lamb’s-ear (Stachys byzantina).
The females will harvest the hairs on the leafs of the plant with their mandibles and use it to cover the nest walls. This female has collected a ball of plant hair.
The bees can be seen hovering next to a plant checking out the flowers.
And the male pauses to drink some nectar as well.
A male resting or waiting for a female?
