A lucky shot of this Bumblebee taking of with its fill of nectar. This is, it appears, Bombus vagans.

Hi Philippe, I have never seen a BBee this colour before. In NZ we have black and yellow ones. I am surptised at its small wings too. It looks good on the flower, well captured, thank you,

What a beautiful bee you've captured here. I don't know what it is but it's a very nice shot with good details and nice background.
TFS, Ulla

Wow!! Excellent macro! This bumblebee is wholly unknown to me. Wonderful sharpness in a difficult instant.
Thank you very much.
