Digger Bee on a Black-eyed Susan

This is an odd flower. Seems to attract one variety of wasp predominantly. But now and then there’s a digger bee on it (which actually looks remarkably like the wasp in question). Look at the hairy front leg. That’s quite a contrast to the pollen sacs that you see on the rear leg of many other bees. Her wing looks a little chewed up, too. Great shape she makes on the flower. And there’s a little bit of shadow…and that always tickles me.
