A Big Bumble

I was walking along the edge of a woodland area the other day and observed this Bumble Bee on Spear thistle flowers. It has to be the biggest Bumble Bees I have seen for a long time, it was giant.

From an examination of the Bumble Bee chart, I would hazard a guess that it is a Queen Buff-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus terrestris).



  1. Hi Roy,
    these are again very nice clear and sharp pictures of this beautiful bumblebee.
    Sorry for my late response, but due to the heat of the past few weeks, I was no longer able to sit on the PC after work.

  2. Hi Roy,
    It is a giant lovely bumble. You have captured him very well!
