Gather ye pollen while ye may

I know it's meant to be "Gather ye rosebuds...", but there weren't any, so this little bee could only gather pollen! I took this in the beautiful Dream Garden at Dunster castle in Somerset. I don't think I've ever seen bees so laden down with pollen. I guess they were making the most of the end of the season.
