Bumble bee: behavioural observation

Bumble bee: behavioural observation

Observation - Bumble bee: behavioural observation - UK and Ireland. Description: I saw this bee today, feeding on the underside of a dock leaf as I initially thought. In retrospect, it may be a newly emerged bee in process of cleaning its legs and back free of soil. It flew off when I moved the leaf.
