Busy Bee

This bee was working the rosemary all afternoon!
I haven't been able to work out what type of bee it is...
Yet... I'm hoping someone will tell me...And, of course, I've been enlightened - it's a bumblebee. A COMMON CARDER BEE.


  1. Could it be Andrena nigroaenea? Or maybe Hairy footed flower bee? I'll ask around

  2. Oh I see someone already identified it as the common carder bumble bee. Bees are tricky!

  3. Very tricky. Lucky my friend at work is a bee expert :-)


Please leave a comment. I'm very pleased to receive corrections or confirmations of my identification of the creatures we've spotted on the allotment.
