Blue Pollen

The bulbs are starting to bloom in a big way now and the bees are starting to get out and about.  

The bees found the scilla and started collecting the blue pollen.  

You can see the gray blue pollen basket on this one's leg.

Bees only gather one type of pollen at a time.  They take it back to the hive and store it to feed to the brood [larvae] throughout the year.
