Description

Likely the same specimen. Images were taken in current sort order. Intervals 8s and 20s.

I would put the coloring difference down to lighting and retouching (in the second image, I significantly brightened the bee as it was poorly exposed). First image is completely unretouched.

Definitely megabombus. Seems somewhat scruffy / long haired. The last two images show the large tongue.

It is not so clear in last two images that the black band is wider than the yellow, so I added the first image to show this.
