      I haven’t seen these red tailed bumbles in the garden for about 3 years till this year. And I haven’t seen this one for about a week – hope it was a queen that is now nesting:)

    Ah – a red-tailed bumblebee then, wouldn’t have known. How beautiful and exciting for you to see one again. Ridiculous question but what is the ‘orange’ bit on its side?

      That is a very full pollen basket, which she will bring back to her nest to feed the young – an excellent question:)
