These bumble bees, according to most sources, are in the decline but appear to be holding
their own here in Utah.  Nature Search says the male of this species has bulging eyes

The Xerces Society has information on what plants to add to your garden to encourage
Bumble Bees.  I know they love Hyssop and wild Sweet Clover.  © Carol Davis 8-18-2014
