cont.

There was a gap of about 6 min between image 1 and the rest, but from the position of the pollen on the bee’s head, one is almost certainly dealing with the same individual.
The implication is that the bee feeds both on flowers and on material (fungi?) on ivy leaves (which were dry in this case).
