I tried to ID this bumble bee but am not sure. It was the only bright yellow bee among the others on my lavender..so I took this pic but it was hard to get a clear one. Do you have any idea which it is?
Based on the coloration and pattern on your bee, we believe this is a Yellow Fronted Bumble Bee, Bombus flavifrons, a species we posted exactly a month ago. According to BugGuide, it is: “Widely distributed in US and Canada.”
Many thanks for your work!!!
