Good shot. I always liked watching bees. Have you recently photographed this? What is the name of this flowering plant? As far as I remember last time it was a pear... And now? the Rose? No?
The pollen grains on the legs of the bee are pollen collected by the honey bee and glued together by the secretions of its glands into granules.

It was a Rose and the shot was taken today. The Roses are really blooming now and the Bees are loving it

probably there will be a very fragrant honey, with a delicate, pleasant aroma
I've never tried rose honey... Only tried rose petal jam

Choosing the right spot. Good shot. I suspect it's been making the rounds.

A discerning guest - he/she won't just sit anywhere. Great catch, EM.

Excellent capture EM. The bee looks pretty full already, but that rose is definitely worth a look.

Wonder what violation in the rose that "drone" intends to report to the authorities....
(I shouldn't be so suspicious!)
Very excellent capture! A capture that I have, so far, failed to get though I've tried a lot.
