Garden bumblebee visits Thistle in wild flower strip bordering Barley crop.
Description:

Two orange bands on the thorax of this bumblebee make it most likely to be a garden bumblebee, but maybe it could be a heath bumblebee, but with no close up of the head, (rounder in the heath, longer in the garden) maybe that cant be ruled out? It was quite large , nearly 2cm
