Tree bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum)

The tree bumblebee or new garden bumblebee is a species of bumblebee common in the European continent and parts of Asia.Foraging workers collect nectar and pollen to bring back to the nest. These bees are particularly drawn to downward hanging flowers like comfrey, but will also visit the flowers of fruit trees and shrubs (like bramble), cotoneaster, fuscia and other garden plants.
