Bumblebees & Echinacea

I popped into the Suffolk garden at the end of a hot day and found this bumblebee in the echinaceas – wonderful!

  1. Now we need to identify the bumble bee. Have just signed up to Bumblebee conservation Trust and there’s a link for photographers! Maybe a buff tailed one. I can’t believe there’s so many types, about 26 in UK. Lovely shots.

  2. dear candy,
    what lovely pictures 🙂 so cute. although i am by no means an expert, i tried to identify the bumble bee and think that this is a “Bombus vestalis”, in english that might be “vestal cuckoo bumblebee”. anyone agree?
