Look very closely!

This little forager bee is working in the camellias.  Her knee britches are full of pollen and her back covered in it.  She's from the harder working hive - given that she's dark.  Yesterday I was mending holes in the netting and later found an exhausted little forager from the other hive sitting on my welly. I took her back to the hive; it might have been her last trip - she looked so tattered and tired.
