A beautiful couple of images of spring insects. The 2nd looks like a Nomada Bee, these are out now as they are mainly cleptoparasites of the Andrena bees. Not sure of the exact one as I find them hard to ID and there are quite a few of them that look similar to me.

Superb shots - quite a shock when you click on them - the level of detail is incredible

I forgot to add that a great online resource for Great Britain and Ireland bees is Steven Falk's flickr pages, the nomada one is here link
I have his book (which also covers Ireland) and is a great resource for people interested in bees. However I still struggle with ID's....
