Fantastic shot, such good timing to capture the in-flight action. This is an Amegilla species of Bee.

Thank you Imogen, and thanks for the ID.
I confess I took several photos of these bees, and this was the only one that was decently in focus. I think it's probably Amegilla quadrifasciata, the White-banded Digger Bee, which is common in Europe.
If you like bees, take a look at this!

Thank you for the link, that is a superb image and glorious bee.

You have done very well capturing the Amegilla bee especially a face view as bees tend to turn their back on you. Thank you for adding your superb picture to the Bee group.
