Tricolored Bumble Bee

Bombus ternarius


These large beautiful bumblebees collect pollen and make honey, just like the smaller honeybee. Notice the pollen baskets on the hind legs. The amount of honey these bees make is not enough for commercial use.


Spotted on wildflowers in a meadow near the Umtanum Creek.
