Bee Happy - I love my Work

I think this is a wild bee (Andrena Cineraria, Ashy Mining Bee) i.e. not from a managed bee hive gathering pollen from an allium plant. It ignored me and my camera and was more or less ignored by the nearby honey bees who chased each other away.
What struck me was the yellow pollen which it was carrying slowly became covered by purple pollen, which I’d seen on the honey bees.

Nikon D7200, Sigma 50mm f/2.8 lens.
