Bombus on Euthamia - Bombus fernaldae - female

Bombus on Euthamia - Bombus fernaldae - Female
Lakewood Township, Oconto County, Wisconsin, USA
August 30, 2017
This large bumble bee was observed perched on Euthamia graminifolia on Aug. 29th. After a thunderstorm the following afternoon, I found the same bee in the same place, and I got photos and a video of the bee grooming before flying away - this is the second photo. Is this a female Bombus fernaldae? Thanks in advance for any identification help - it's greatly appreciated!
