After mating the female Cliff Mining Bee (Andrena thoracica) seemed to give herself a moment or two by splaying out her legs.

It was just on the edge of activity temperature wise this morning. When the sun went in the male bees just dropped onto the side of the path.

They were in well separated groups in places as well as singly but these two were cuddled up close.

Both of these two pictures were manually focus stacked in the field and thus show slightly more detail.

Very fortunate this morning. This pair were just close to one of the tracks through the course.
