First Bumble Bee by Fons van Swaal

First Bumble Bee

Bumblebees are social insects that are characterized by black and yellow body hairs, often in bands.
However, some species have orange or red on their bodies, or may be entirely black.
Another obvious (but not unique) characteristic is the soft nature of the hair (long, branched setae), called pile, that covers their entire body, making them appear and feel fuzzy.

ein sehr gelungenes Foto. Bei uns gibt es noch keine Hummeln auf Blüten und die "Nieswurz" blüht auch noch nicht.
Dieses Foto lege ich zu meinen Favoriten!
