Artist's Description

On a cool, cloudy springtime afternoon, a large Yellow-faced Bumble Bee (Bombus vosnesenskii) gathers pollen from a cluster of delicate pink flowers that fill a neighborhood circle. Nearby, the occasinal rush of a vehicle and the soft steps of human passers-by do not seem to bother this busy insect. Garden flora are not the only beneficiaries. This bumble bee is a native to the region, and is an important pollinator of local wildflowers—plants that imported honeybee species often do not visit.
