Bumblebee visitor...





This little guy was visiting was my flowerbed this afternoon. Bumblebees are quite different to honeybees. They make the hives under the ground in old holes left by mice or other creatures. They only stay together for one season.

Thank you. I was going to ask for a brief lesson between bumble, honey and wasp. I guess I could do it myself on the net.
