These bumblebees were “captured” along the Marshall Mesa Trail near Boulder, Colorado, USA — one of my favorite places to hike. Note: These are not the same species of bumblebee as in my earlier BBC Bumblebee post — In fact, there are more than 250 known species, according to Bumblebee.org. Wow. Kind of like butterflies, except on a smaller scale (there are more than 20,000 species of butterflies, according to the North American Butterfly Association).
