Calling all bee buffs!

Here come the girls?

This is an extra post for a Friday. The clever bee keeper in the house has had his camera out.

Can you help us identify these lovely girls?

    I don’t know about the first picture. I just can’t make out the details but the bottom two look like honey bees. In the second to last you can see it has filled up its pollen sac on the hind leg.

      Yes. That’s right but the first one is a real curiosity!

        The black fuzz in the first kind of suggests a bumble-bee but the picture is pretty blurry.
