Sorry for the fuzzy picture. This guy wouldn't stop moving. He was on a plant in the middle of the Stanislaus River.
This bumble bee was loaded with pollinia from the milkweeds. Loaded!!! :)
A bumblebee is any member of the bee genus Bombus, in the family Apidae. There are over 250 known species, existing primarily in the Northern Hemisphere although they also occur in South America. They have been introduced to New Zealand and the Australian state of Tasmania.
