bees in January

This was the day, January 3rd 2013. 
Soaring blue sky, back-warming sunshine, 
high of 11,3 in the shade, so perhaps 14-15 in the sun?
The winter-flowering honeysuckle 
(lonicera fragrantissima
has been blooming the last few days.
Fragrantissima: the bees must have sensed it.
Today they were out in strength, plundering its blossoms.
A sweet treasure in the heart of winter.
