    Check out this funky bumblebee, I've never seen one with orange before. Anybody seen one like this?

    No, was it in your yard? I'd be interesting to know if you start seeing more like it.

    Yes, it was in the back pasture. I think it has just hatched as it's wings looked odd and it did not try to fly away when I was photographing it. Hey, I know, it must be a crossing guard for all the other bees, see the orange vest? :lol

    These are the kinds I normally see around here... They were in the catmint I have in the back garden.

    I had some of those in my backyard a few years ago after some utility guys were digging for something. I think they dug up a nest, but I don't know any more than that. Never seen 'em since. I just figured they were going hunting. ;)
