Pollen Buckets on Helianthemum

Helianthemum – also known as rock rose, sunrose, rushrose, and frostweed. As I mentioned before, fantastic for pollinators.

A bit windy yesterday and this isn’t a particularly good shot of the flower – but look at those pollen buckets on her. Wondering how full is too full. And of course her filthy face. Another thing to notice is her underside. Such a neat pattern there. Very cool little bee today.
