Photographed at my local nature reserve in ameadow last week. Not sure as to identity, although the nearest I can find is Dasypoda altercator - can anyone confirm or offer an alternative?

Canon Powershot G9
ISO200, F8, 1/160 sec
Cropped image

Background is a little hot but other than that, the bee looks pretty good. Very Happy I like ISO 80 when I am using the G7 and I shoot in the manual mode of operation, with everything except focusing. Sometimes all that auto stuff does not see the subject the way we do. I let the camera take care of focusing though but you can use manual focusing too if you want. Very Happy
