Poppy bee (Osmia papaveris or Hoplitis papaveris)

Male poppy bees (Osmia papaveris or Hoplitis papaveris) usually emerge from their nests a few days before the females appear. They observe and patrol the nesting sites, ready to mate. On these first summer days, rain showers need to be sat out on flower blossoms and the tiny bodies fanned dry again.
