Tree Bumblebee queen

New queen feeding on echinops today in our garden, so a second generation highly probable -given the recent weather they are making the most of it.

There was a queen in my garden yesterday, which surprised me as I thought all queens would be breeding at this time.. I think it was a White-tailed.
