Looks a funny autumn crocus to me. More like Pickwick.

Certainly looks nothing like my C.speciosa buds.

If not Pickwick then a similar spring flowering crocus, complete with spring crocus leaves

Oh dear - picture researcher chappess obviously not a gardener then?

There was a talk on bees advertised locally, illustrated with a picture of a wasp on wasp nest. 

I think it's a different person, a designer maybe? that chooses pictures
