Tropinota squalida and a small bee

Description:

I saw these 2 sharing a flower today! are they bees? The smaller one definatly is, I think a young one, but the larger I'm not sure about! I don't normally get close enough to them to see what they look like in detail but since they were so busy with the flower...

Habitat:

Amongst the wild daisies near the sand dunes

It's black with lots of yellow hairs!!

The bigger one looks like a hairy beetle of some sort.
