Since 1978 we've maintained a list of vertebrates that occur on our choose and cut Christmas tree farm and apiary, and we'd like to expand the list to include invertebrates. Over the years I've taken many photos Someone suggested this site to confirm/assist with ID. I believe this is Golden Northern Bumble Bee (Bombus fervidus), but I want to be sure. Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
