Bzzzz....




Today was humid and showery with odd sunny spells. At Seaton Point this morning a few Cinnabar Moth caterpilars were feeding on Ragwort, and this Bumble bee looked a bit different. It was small and plain black without the usual stripes. It was whitish towards the tail but thats about it really. Does anyone know what it is? It was the only plain black one here that I could see, though there were many red tailed, and white tailed Bumbles around.
