Yellow and black bumblebee.
Albion under the trees, Maple Ridge BC. on the wood chip pile. Suburban property in temperate rain forest.
Thanks for your ID suggestion, ForestDragon! I have edited my spotting.
Hi Eva, this is a beautiful find (bee-youtiful, ;-) )! I believe this may be a species of Bumble Bee, rather than a honey bee. Check out genus Bombus: http://bugguide.net/node/view/3077I think this especially looks similar to a Perplexing Bumble Bee: http://bugguide.net/node/view/79001
