Crimson is going to seed, not many bees on them this late in the day. Leftover rape seed was sown with it, supposed to make a decent forage. I've read crimson flower is too long for bees to work but have seen them work it here.

I think that's red clover...

If you do a google search for red vs crimson clover and then click on the images feature there is a distinct difference. The tip of the flower in the pic could be mistaken, but note how long the flower is and the darker hue relative to red.
thats crimson in the picture above, if you knew the plants there is a big difference....
