I haven't actually considered it yet...as this is the first day that I've seen them in the poppies...I'm a newbie this year...so I'm learning as I go...I can't wait to open the hive and see this pollen in the cells...along with all the other colors that will make a nice photo too!

Harvesting pollen is a nice experience. I was late because I did not disturb the bees, but really I was losing the time.
Any times we can think that bees are working two or three plants, but when you see the multicolor pollen you can think that you live in Wonderland, and you know nothing.
