Cuckoo Bee

A female cuckoo bee of genus Nomada, possibly Nomada flava (Hymenoptera: Apidae), though it's not really possible to reliably identify these bees from photos alone (see here).  It's on a leaf of dog's mercury, Mercurialis perennis.

Photos taken in the field below Chazey Wood, near Caversham, UK, on 2012-04-13.
