Bumble Bee: Bombus terricola or B. pensylvanicus? - Bombus terricola
near Armstrong Creek, Forest County, Wisconsin, USA July 18, 2012
This is a supplemental photo showing a view of the end of the bee's abdomen - the same Bumble Bee on Common Milkweed flowers as in the other two photos. I think it is Bombus terricola or B. pensylvanicus, and it may not be possible to know for sure from these photos, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
