A tiny Hylaeus bee (H. hyalinatus ?) feeding from Wild Carrot (Daucus carota) in my garden.

Probably H. hyalinatus female judging by the very small white facial markings.

Thank you Nigel, there were dozens of these here yesterday, the wild carrot is really proving to be popular with a good number of species.

Gorgeous ethereal looking image. Superb detail on the bee Adrian, good to see the ocelli so clearly. Wild carrot, hmm, must see if I can obtain seed somewhere.

Thank you Imogen, if you can't find wild carrot it might be worth letting some ordinary carrots run to seed! Other good umbelliferae are the various Ammi species and cultivars along with the Astrantias, all seem to be very attractive to many species.
