Bathing in pollen

After yesterday's exertions, it was a quiet day at home marking scripts from Leeds University. This was punctuated by frequent forays into the garden to look for pollinators - unfortunately the gusty wind meant that most of my photographs were out of focus! However, by chance I managed a fairly decent shot of this Ashy Mining-bee busy on an Ox-eye Daisy - it's fur is literally covered with the golden pollen, as though it's been bathing in it.
