"White-shouldered Bumble Bee"
Bombus appositus

Bombus appositus
This large female Bombus appositus was found above Strawberry Reservoir hanging around with
a smaller, female bumble bee and mostly prodding some wood that was on the ground. I don't
know what they were doing with the wood, but they seemed a little obsessed.  You can see
the male of the species here
