Description

These pictures were taken in my back patio of the 3 bumble bees. The bees and other creatures often get trapped by the screened-in porch. They are approximately 1 inch in length with black & yellow stripes. The bumble bees also drill wholes in the wooden railings making a pile of wooden dust. I first noticed the 3 bumble bees hanging out together and second picture of when I saw only two of them. I thought it was interesting. Took these pictures with my iPhone5.
