You would be very unlikely to

You would be very unlikely to have a male Bombus in March. The antennae of this one are too short for a male. The collar is too broad, and that and the tail are too pale, for a queen terrestris. The crucial views are missing, but it probably B. cryptarum or B. magnus.
