Found on a dandelion. Moved to a grey table for photos. This bee spent several minutes ingesting and regurgitating a yellow colored fluid from it's mouth. That activity can be seen in one of these photo. I guess this has something to do with the pollen from the dandelions that it had been visiting. What is the purpose of this process?

I don't know a lot about bees, but it may be nectar that the bee collected for making honey.
