Does any one know what these are,and if so  do the honey bees work them.
I have hundreds of acre's of them adjacent to my hives,they are a wetland flower and grow on a vine,the yellow ones.

Thanks duck for the ID.They bloomed a few weeks ago,and they are some thick.The bees are bringing in a little honey from somewere,thought it might have been from these flowers,I saw some bumblebees working them.
