Leaf-cutter bee nesting in a reclining chair!

It was a surprise yesterday to see a Leaf-cutter bee attempt to nest in one of the holes in a back leg (stile) of a reclining garden chair! The leaves kept falling out of the bottom of the leg, a pity as the bee had worked hard. Lovely to see such an attempt at close quarters.
