Artist's Description

Another first for me,I saw this drone red shanked carder bee in Blackburn,lancashire uk. Id verified byth Bumblebee conservation trust it is a rare bee that is a UK BAP listed species. Note the red hairs on its legs. Threse hairs distinguish it from the red tailed bumble bee whose hairs are black.I was very excited when I spotted this and couldn’t believe my eyes.
Taken with a canon 450D and a canon 100mm macro lens. Processed in cs4.
