Bees, Ladybirds and Spring Bulbs

Reassuring to see large numbers of Honey Bees at work collecting pollen and nectar from the Anemones, Scilla and  Puschkinias. Interesting that the Scilla (fewer stamens) have blue pollen (you can see it on the bee's back leg) while the Puschkinias have the more usual yellow pollen (images 5 and 6). Even one of the Ladybirds had found an aphid to eat.
