hello has all.
after long minutes of waiting this insect came to be posed in front of me in an apple tree in flowers.
after a small research I have decouvert that it is about a black bumblebee.
extract of the site:
This black "bumblebee" with bluish wings is an exception: it is a bee charpentière, recluse, xylophagous, one sees some sometimes in July and August in the medium of the bees on the flowers.

just framed and accentuated photograph.
good week end.

Laurent bonjour, belle macro de Bourdon noir, bonne composition et jolies couleurs. C'est un insecte qui se déplace trés vite en vol, je crois. Mes félicitations, Didier.

Hi Laurennt,
This is a new one for me. I have never observed an all black bumble bee. Excellent macro. The colors look great. Nice sharp detail. Very unique!

Joli cliché pour cette abeille charpentière. Je me rappelle quand j'en ai photographié, elles sont impressionnante mais pas méchantes. Compliments Laurent.
