Bumblebee on Liatris mucronata.
I saw this bee at Moreland Fruit Farm.
this bombus looked different from any I had seen before and it doesn't seem to be common in Colorado although common in many other areas of the U.S. There were numerous bees on the flowers in front of the ranger station at the wildlife wetlands
Queen found dead in basement
Gathering nectar from bushes, no pollen seen on legs or body. Large population in this area.
