Anthophora sp. on Flickr.

Quite a few of this species appear at our nepeta plants when the sun is out, very spending more than a second at each flower. Don’t often see them land, but on a cople of occasions yesterday, I saw one land on the plant, clasp the stem in it’s powerful jaws and then groom itself with all legs, often taking it’s whole body weight just on that bite strength.
