Laona, Forest County, Wisconsin, USA July 30, 2015
This bumble bee was foraging on Blue Vervain (Verbena hastata) in the Forest Service's Native Plant and Pollinator Program Demonstration Restoration Garden at the Laona Office. This is the second of four images of this individual. Is this a male Bombus terricola? Thanks so much for your time and help!
