    Great pic! I like the light shining from the left onto the bee and flower.

    First picture I ever saw of that bumble bee, all I have seen are the big yellow and black ones which we have many of here.

    I've never seen a tri-color bumble bee before. Thanks for the picture.
    The two toned bumbled bees love the catmint in my yard as well. I have a bunch of it planted. I am concerned that the bumble bees visiting my yard are on a decline. I have only seen two at one time, thus far, this year.
