Spotted in my garden in bioblitz, though when I took the photo I assumed it was just an ordinary red-tailed bumble bee. Then I noticed the red hairs on the hind legs when I looked at the photo. Thought it was worth putting on ispot to encourage looking closely at bumble bees (and making sure photos include back legs).
