Could someone identify this bee please? I saw this bee today (27 February 2013) in my garden in South Lincolnshire.
This is a Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) on a Hellebore (Helleborus sp). An early insect on an early flower. There are other early sources of nectar now: snowdrops, dandelions, etc.
Many thanks. Glad to know we still have some honey bees.
