Despite the fur coat, she was having a hard time

Found this female Anthophora plumipes today, stalled on the pavement as a blistering wind whipped up the dusty remains of the frosty snow which fell on Saturday. Even with her thick hairy coat she was barely moving. Nothing is flying out there so I was a bit surprised to see her, presumably trying to forage. The thermometer has been below zero for several days now, and although the ground is no longer white, there is a pale remnant tucked down in the long grass.
