Yellow-faced bumble bee

Bombus vosnesenskii


Bumblebee with a mostly black dorsal area, one yellow stripe near the apex of the abdomen and another at the top of the thorax. Some yellow on the head as well.


Ceanothus, california lilac bush


Originally I thought this was caliginosus, but the people at informed me that it was actually vosnesenskii.
