A couple of days ago, I was at one of my favorite spots looking for odonata (dragonflies, if you’re wondering).
I didn’t see any, but along the shoreline there was a large gathering of wildflowers and within them…bees.
I enjoy watching bees do “their thing,” especially bumblebees. While watching the bees, I noticed two different types of bumblebees.
One had a small, single yellowish-white stripe near the end of the abdomen, and the other is typical of most bumblebees I see in my area. It had a yellowish-white stripe further up from the end of the abdomen and on top of that, an orange stripe.
But bees gave me good looks and the time to get a decent photo (even after I had screwed up my initial settings as I shot the top bee’s photo).
