Bee with lots of pollen.  Nikon D7000
31st March 2014

I saw this bee today investigating the Hyacinths that have just started flowering in the garden.  It seemed to be struggling to fly, and when I looked, I realised it was laden down with a huge stash of pollen in its leg sacks.

After a short rest, it seemed to buzz off happily, with lots of food for the evening.

I wonder if bees can sneeze?   With all that pollen around and sticking my head in flowers all day, I know I would.
