Is this a bee or a beatle?

This was on our back deck here in the Seattle area. I thought it was dead because it didn’t move for almost two days. We put it in a jar for my step-son to take to his science teacher to find out, but the bug was lost.
We believe this is a Yellow Faced Bumble Bee, Bombus vosnesenskii. According to BugGuide, it is found in Washington State as well as the rest of the west coast states.
