Bee Identification

I knew that identifying Britain's bees was not going to be easy but it is certainly proving quite a puzzle as many species are very similar and  there is much variation within each species. There are 24 species of bumblebees, around 225 species of solitary bee and just a single honeybee species in Britain. Just to confuse things further the last image is a bee-mimicking Hoverfly!!
