Hunt's Bumble Bee
Bombus huntii

Hunt's bumble bee
I found this large gorgeous bumble bee visiting the Rocky Mountain Bee Plants on Antelope Island.
I rotated the photo so you can see it better - the bee is actually hanging from the plant cleaning its
legs.  Check out that tongue!  The photo below is oriented correctly.  © Carol Davis, 9-3-2013

Bombus huntii haning from Rocky Mountain Bee Plant
This bee hung here for quite a while and let me take some photos. It was hard not to just drop the
camera and stare because it was so gorgeous.  There are more photos here.  © Carol Davis 9-3-2013
