Orange pollen, white flowers

Bees out on a warm October day on this white flower. Lovely orange pollen on her back legs.

The shrub, in case you were wondering, is a Choisya Ternata or Mexican Orange Blossom, which flowers in spring and again in late autumn and even into winter if it’s mild, which is good news for honeybees as there isn’t much around to forage on now, except for a few cosmos, penstemons and Michaelmas daisies.
