I have bees browsing a swath of pink geraniums in West Seattle.
Can you tell me what kind they are, or if they are juveniles of a common bee?

Thanks to BugGuide, we were able to identify your Yellow Fronted Bumble Bees, Bombus flavifrons. According to BugGuide: “Widely distributed in US and Canada.” These really are beautiful Bumble Bees. We are postdating your submission to go live in early June while we are away from the office.
