Flightless Bumblebee

Flightless Bumblebee

Observation - Flightless Bumblebee - UK and Ireland. Description: Found crawling around lawn and buzzing loudly, this poor bee seems to have undeveloped wings. I put it on the scabious flower and it fed avidly. It was more this than the i/d which was of interest - has anyone else come across this in the past?
