Bumblebees are large, hairy insects with a lazy buzz and clumsy, bumbling flight. Many of them are black and yellow, and along with ladybirds and butterflies are perhaps the only insects that almost everyone likes. Bumblebees are found mainly in northern temperate regions, though there are a few native South American species and New Zealand has some naturalised species that were introduced around 100 years ago to pollinate red clover. They range much further north than honey bees, and colonies can be found on Ellesmere Island in northern Canada, only 880 km from the north pole!

Bumble Bees are almost cute and they are not very agressive. I will testify to you one thing though, if you lean back on one in a chair or step on one, you'll dang sure know you did it. LOL.

One more--these bees are the size of my thumb (and I have pretty big hands).

I really liked this one. I played with it in an image editer for awhile and did a bunch of different things. It's a fun shot.

Very Nice! I wish I had been able to catch their flight the way you did, but it was pretty dark and these were in a ditch on the side of a county road--making it that much darker. I used a 50mm, f2.0 manual lens, but had to pretty much "open it up all the way" so the depth of field isn't very good, either.
