A male of the common bee...I think.
A very common mistake, don't worry. Many people believe that this is the male of honeybee. Indeed, seems a male, but of Bombus terrestris. Males faces seem more round than females. Beside, males have the antennae with 12 segments while females have 13. Also, males don't have the sting, though many times is hard to see.
I think it's a buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris) instead of a common bee (im not sure)
