I love being outdoors. Mostly I am into pollinators, however in the process of observing pollinators, I come into contact with a lot of other critters.
I take my kids on bug hunts and we photograph a lot of different bugs. We have been participating in the Bee Hunter Project at Discover Life and just recently discovered this site and we are very excited about it.
For help identifying various bumble bees of North America, go to this US Forest Service page: http://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/features/posters.shtml
and scroll down to Eastern and Western Bumble bees. You can print these up and shrink to fit an 8 1/2 X 11 standard piece of paper and laminate for a field guide.
