"While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see."
Stopped off on my way home from a two day caregiving stint to visit with these amazing creatures feasting away in a forest of beautiful blooms. Could not tear myself away for nearly an hour! What a healing!
Here is a little information on these amazing beings:
The Yellow-faced bumble bee (Bombus vosnessenskii) is a handsome bumble bee mostly black with a yellow face and pro-thorax and narrow yellow abdominal band. It occurs in the western states of California, into Nevada, Washington, Oregon and into British Columbia. It does not seem to have been affected, in decline, like the formerly widespread Western Bumble Bee (Bombus occidentalis).
