16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A 1.5" long bumblebee nestled in delphiniums

I live in the mountains of Arizona in Prescott. I have not seen a bumblebee for many years. I have a flower and vegetable garden, and yesterday June 20th I spotted this beautiful huge Bumblebee. I heard it first, and then watched it as it flew about the delphiniums for an hour or so. I took many shots to get this photograph.
