The honey flow has started

I snapped this little guy this afternoon on one of the tree lucerne. There are vast armies of bumble bees collecting pollen at the moment and very few honey bees. In fact I’ve seen exactly one honey bee so far this Spring. That will change when our new colonies arrive in November but until then I’m glad someone’s making use of the flowers. Check out the very full pollen sac on his leg.
