There are six spotting there. The three types of flies. Two bees, and the wasps.

You have to zoom in on the photo. WHAT A GREAT PHOTO!!!!

Moved to arthropods :-) Looks like wasps rather than bumble bees.

Looks like you have some others in there as well.
Yellow Jacket Hornets, Green Fly and possibly a Carpenter Bee.
What a great photo to catch all of them in one place.
