Busy Bee – Silent Sunday My Sunday Photo 030716

Busy Bee – Silent Sunday My Sunday Photo 030716.  I was out in the back garden with Monkey recently and we spotted this enormous bee in the grass.  The photo doesn’t do it justice, it was huge!

Queen Red Tailed Bumble Bee

I’d never seen a bee like it, so a quick email to Guru Gramps was sent.  What is it?  His reply – a Queen Red Tailed Bumble Bee – Bombus Lapidarius, which apparently nests underground and is rather rare these days.

Have you spotted anything unusual in your garden recently

  1. It is unusual as it has so much black on it and less of the stripes which you associate with bees. It must be good to have Guru Gramps on hand!
