Can you ID further?
I am still hoping for a more specific id...thanks

Moved
Moved from Bumble Bees.

Moved
Moved from ID Request.

 
Can I get a more specific response?
I was hoping to get a more specific response. I am sure it is a bumble bee, but the yellow coloring doesn't match bumble bees found commonly in Nebraska.
Maybe I misunderstand when a request gets moved from "ID Request", but usually that is the end of an identification.
I am wondering if it is possibly a Bombus fervidus - Golden Northern Bumble Bee?
Thanks.

 
Moved for expert attention
This move means that someone who knows more about Bombus than I do will have an easier time finding and looking at the photo. I admit it's not a genus I know much about (heck, I don't know that much more about the order), so one of the experts will be able to tell you much more than I would.

 
Thanks...
I saw the same bumble bee again today. I have spent time looking at different sites...think it might be Bombus fervidus - Golden Northern Bumble Bee. It is possible to be in Nebraska, but not common. I also came across another site that will help me work on my own attempts to ID...Bumble Bee Watch. You do have to try to id on your own, but that is ok...am trying to learn.
Thanks again.

 
Moved to Hymenoptera sp.
More people will initially see it, so this may get you a species ID faster.
