They're very good photos, Snoot, but to be useful in identifying pollen, I think we need to see the bee with pollen sacs bulging so that we see coloured pollen packages with the bee on the blossom - not easy to do. Here's my pathetic effort of one of Cornwall's finest on a cherry blossom but the pollen sac is not very large.
