An uncommon Boulder Bumble
The western bumble bee, Bombus occidentalis, is an uncommon visitor in Boulder. This one was spotted foraging on black berry flowers in the Shakespeare Garden at CU-Boulder. This species is thought to be in decline in parts of its range so it's a welcomed sight just outside the Museum of Natural History!
