I find the amount of white hairs on the legs of this one to be really confusing.

I looked through Stephen Falk's images and can't seem to find anything that matches.

The abdomen doesn't seem to be shiny enough for A thoracica but….

So then A clarkella, A scotica, or A bicolor or ….?

The white on the hairs is from the white pollen on Alexanders.

Thus Cliff Mining Bee (Andrena thoracica ♀︎)

A huge thanks to Nick Owens for all the helpful id comments.
