I have seen this on a few occasions. For example, today not long after it rained I went over to observe my bees (B-TV)(Watching Chickens is Chick-TV). They were bringing pollen in. I know everything was still wet from the downpour we got an hour earlier.
My thinking is probably wrong on this, but wouldn't the rain have wash the pollen off? I figured it would be tomorrow before they could get back at harvesting.
