I spotted these creatures collecting pollen from ox eye daisies! They are between 3mm and 6mm in length.
Any help in identifying them would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Dioctria. That makes sense as I observed a few lacewings flitting about on the same day I took these shots!

As they are carnivorous, I doubt they were collecting pollen on purpose. Probably patrolling the flowerheads for feeding insects?
