Your letter to the bugman: Dear Bugman,
During an am yoga practice this beautiful bee was sharing props with me. It appeared to love the strap! It was difficult to get a photo with out disturbing too much. The individual was shortly released.

This is a Bumble Bee in the genus Bombus, but we do not recognize the species. Perhaps Cesar Crash from Brazil will recognize the species. According to BugGuide, the preferred habitat for Bumble Bees is: “Generally distributed but most abundant and diverse at humid, cool sites rich in flowers, such as mountain meadows.”
