Bright Yellow Bumble Bee - Bombus flavifrons - male

Bright Yellow Bumble Bee - Bombus flavifrons - Male
Seattle, King County, Washington, USA
June 12, 2009
Size: 17mm
Found nectaring at Himalayan Blackberry, Rubus armeniacus. These are very common, but fast-moving, so I rarely get the chance at a clear photo of one.

I suspect B. fervidus, but not sure.
