    Default Blue pollen

    I saw this stuff yesterday for the first time, and I managed to get a few pictures, so I figured I'd post them here. Didn't see any last year. I saw some old posts on the forum about bees collecting from old tractor paint, but after doing a bit of online searching it seems to be coming from a plant around here called "Siberian Squill", a little blue bulb-plant I've seen growing in the woods, but not abundantly. Apparently the bees have found more than I have seen though, a number of them are carrying it in their baskets.
