Native Bees in the Backyard – Common Eastern Bumblebee

Hey everyone.  This one comes from a recent Saturday morning I spent using a new DIY flash difusser I built.  I had eight species of native bee as well as lots of honey bee on the Silphium and other native forbs blooming in my wildflower patches.  It is really something to see the difference in the number of pollinators and other insects that can be found in a native plant garden in comparison to the typical exotic landscaping plants used predominantly in the suburbs.
