My eyes must be messing up.
All I see is yellow pollen on the back leg
most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

Alright dive master.  
I looked again.  I see various hues of blue and purple on the flower but the pollen on the leg looks yellow to me.

My wife sees yellow pollen as well.

Just poking ;). there is hue of blue but I think It is from the reflection of the flower off the white particles of pollen mixed with the yellow. I can see that the true pollen coming from the stiemen is yellow.
