March 11th, Foragers out and about

Beekeeper Gerard snapped these two photos of honey bees working his bird feeder.  That means they must be raising brood and are out looking for pollen or a suitable substitute.

 Bee digging in cracked grain dust in bird feeder.
Bee sunning/warming on roof of feeder before flight home.  Any guess on what the white blob is?

Here its airborne and the blob is still there?  Is it a water droplet covered with dust?
