Miss Bee On Her Blackberry by 


Now this is one beautiful Bee, not a clue what type as I have never seen a tri – coloured one with red hair and a white skirt before, so have sent an unedited picture asking the Bee experts to help me out.
Taken with a Pentax Optio RS 1000 Compoact Camera on Super Macro.
Bombus hypnorum, the tree bumblebee or new garden bumblebee, is one of the most common bumblebee species in north and eastern Europe, but is less common past 70 degrees north. Its distribution ranges over most of Europe and parts of Eastern Asia, although less common. It has a short tongue and can therefore only retrieve nectar from certain plants.

Bombus hypnorum was first observed in parts of southern UK in 2001, and has since been spreading all across southern UK. The UK organization Bees, Wasps & Ants Recording Society engages in monitoring the species. In August 2008, Bombus hypnorum was found in Iceland, and queens have been found each year since
The tree bumblebee defends its nest in a very pro-active manner. If disturbed, a large number of very aggressive workers emerge from the entrance to defend the nest. They will fly at high speed around the entrance to the nest, in order to scare away possible attackers. In this state, they may well sting unprovoked. For this reason, the tree bumblebee might end up in conflict with humans if it establishes its nest in human buildings. However, if left undisturbed, the tree bumblebee is quite peaceful
