Description:

The male of this species. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, but it was quite breezy so it was difficult to get the bee to stay in focus on a swaying plant! :( The photos certainly don't do it any justice, this was a stunning individual, certainly one of the most (if not the most) colourful Bombus sp. in the UK.
