Bombus vosnesenskii

I had an encounter with some little friends the other day while photographing the crocuses. This one is a yellow-faced bumble bee, and was busy, busy, busy. She was mostly moving too fast for my macro, which has a very short depth of field. But I got a couple of decent pictures.

Doesn’t she look pettable?

And here’s a hint of what’s to come when I finish getting the photos together: Bombus melanopygus was a lot slower, and I took a LOT of pictures of her.
