Common Carder bee

Finally it is warming up and slowly the bee activity is increasing. Today a Common carder bee (Bombus pascuorum) was feeding in a daffodil flower. Yesterday there were other bees feeding from the pollen of one of the cultivated willows. They were too high in the tree to identify.
