pollen sacs brimming

It always seems like Todmorden and the surrounding locale gets more than its fair share of rain fall – it’s a wet place.
But today was one of those rare days of glorious autumn sunshine. We went to one of the hives to install a mouse guard. However, we couldn't because the bees were so active: taking advantage of the warm, dry day. They were busily going in and out of the hive, their pollen sacs bulging with bright yellow pollen. We wished we’d had our camera with us to take a photo of them. But in the absence of a camera a drawing will suffice.
