The buff colour tail of Mrs Bombus terrestris (or should that be Ma’am as she is the Queen)
Not a real bee but a fly – a Bee Fly – Bombylius major, a fast wee fellow who did his best to elude my lens!
Whether a true bumble bee or just a cuckoo bee? It’s all in the hairiness of the legs!
The Bumble Bee Conservation Trust has a super helpful identification webpage if you want to get that close!
