Hunt’s Bumblebee

While the majority of the bees flitting about the lavender are honey bees, I was trying to focus on the larger, fluffier, bumble bee that was bouncing from bloom to bloom. I believe that this orange and yellow bumble be is the “Bombus huntii” or Hunt’s Bumblebee. How this differs from the “Bombus ternarius” or orange belted bumble bee, I couldn’t tell you. However, the range of the Hunt’s Bumblebee covers the Western United States while the orange belted bumble bee’s range in farther north. Enjoy the pictures.
