mid Feb 072 Bumble bee coming in to land on Clematis cirrhosa

Quite a few bumble bees around in the sunshine today. Some were definitely buff-tailed, but not sure about this one - its tail looks whitish, but maybe just the angle and lighting. May not be possible to tell from this. They liked this Clematis cirrhosa, winter jasmine, crocuses, stinking hellebores and sarcococca (edited - not osmanthus!).
