Visited my bees today, it was just like a summers day with them coming and going laden with pollen.

This pollen was bright orange, so much so it was almost luminous, some appeared so laden down they could hardley fly. Has anyone any ideas which plant this pollen could have come from, as there appears to be very little in flower near by ?
:)

Thanks for correction Wilderness.
Read,marked, learnt and inwardly digested, as my history teacher used to say.

Thanks for the replies could be snow drops. They are in a field just outside of our village; just shows how far they will travel
