Bee Activity Around Jujube

Saw these bees around my So ("Contorted") jujube. Temps in the low 70s, just had a big dust storm here in Phoenix. Not sure what they're doing, but they were as still as statues. No flowers yet on the tree.

RE: Bee Activity Around Jujube

Very interesting, thanks for posting the pic. Only explanation I can think of is that they were gathering/feeding on some sort of sap exudate from those new shoots. Bees will gather non-floral sugary substances from all sorts of plants.
