Yellow-Faced Bumble Bee pollinating the Sunshine Blueberries

Between the rainstorms this yellow-faced bumble bee Bombus vosnesenskii has been busy pollinating our sunshine blueberry blossoms.

I couldn't get a good shot of the bee because it was constantly in motion, flying from blossom to blossom. You would think it wouldn't be so hard to get a better shot since these bumble bees are quite large, therefore slower than other bees.

But you can still see how fuzzy these bees are from the yellow hairs on its face.

After spending some time on the plant the bee would suddenly take off, flying in large circles around the patio.

I think it's the same bee that always visits.
