Golden Northern Bumble Bee
Also simply known as the yellow bumble bee, this colorful and large important nectarivorous pollinator is found throughout most of the Northern United States and Southern Canada where it lives both above ground and below ground, typically in a location within 50 meters of a large food source (large patch of wildflowers). This particular bee was busily feeding from a bull thistle by Henderson Inlet on the Puget Sound, about five miles from Olympia Washington and a hot summer day.
