A close-up photograph of an orange-banded bumble bee pollinating lavender. Photographed was taken in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm not certain which species this is as bombus huntii and bombus ternarius have almost the same coloration. My guess is that this one is bombus huntii (Hunt's bumble bee) because it has yellow hairs on its face where the b. ternarius has black.
