Honeybees trapped in Crocus

February 19, 2015

I was out collecting crocus pollen this morning (cold work) and to my surprise when I opened up one of the flower heads to access the anthers I found two dead honeybees! They must have been caught yesterday when the crocus closed up as it got colder, yesterday was warm with no clouds in the sky so the afternoon chill would have set in quickly.
