  1. I’ve never heard of a ‘pollen basket’, had to Google to see if it is a real thing or just a term you used. Real, indeed! Along with another mechanism known as ‘scopa’. My factoid for the day. πŸ™‚

  2. She must be thinking “just one more”.

  3. BeckyB says:

    quite amazing how they can carry all the pollen. Amazing creatures . . . . .

    Great shot, Jude. She is the Bee-world version of ‘Mr Creosote’ though! πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  6. That’s an excellent shot! I hadn’t heard of ‘pollen basket’ before, so I will add that one to my bee vocabulary. It’s a pollen gathering bee for me today too. πŸ™‚

    What a fantastic picture!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Pit. I took a few to get this shot ☺️

    1. Heyjude says:

      Quite. I haven’t seen any honey bees though which is worrying. πŸ˜•

      1. Ann Mackay says:

        I’ve seen fewer honeybees here too – but maybe it’s just because there are different flowers, e.g. less borage this year. Hope that’s all it is…
