Can anyone identify where the girls have been playing? Back of head and thorax pretty well covered, not much on abdomen but a light dusting on the wings. Not masses on the pollen baskets. From my pollen guide too light to be evening primrose?

Probably Himalayan Balsam, not that I know what I'm talking about :) but I've got loads near me and they come back looking like ghosts.........

Frisbee

Fabulous photo by the way.....

I agree with Frisbee, it look like Himalayan Balsam. Plenty of my bees come back with this coloured pollen (except its in fully loaded baskets or should I say supermarket trolleys - they are so full).

And wonderful piccies
