~ Raspberry Blossoms and Bombus ~



Raspberry canes are in bloom and with the warm dry weather are attracting all sorts of pollinators.


This Bombus caught my eye and stayed around long enough for me to get my iPhone and snap these shots.


Since I don’t know what variety of Bombus it is, I’ve now signed onto another citizen science project: Bumble Bee Watch!

  1. Wonderful shots, Lindy! 🙂
    We used to pick the best tasting Raspberries in Michigan, years back.
