A bee "drunk" on pollen

This bee was so still that at first I thought it was dead. Then I realised it was just resting. Lots of bees were gathering pollen from the beautiful dahlias in the Dream Garden at Dunster Castle in Somerset last week. They were so heavy with pollen that they were literally falling off backwards! It was a bizarre sight.
