Black tailed Bumble Bee on the Ceanothus

I originally identified this bumble bee as a hover fly because there is a hover fly that resembles it.

After researching further, I've determined that it definitely is a black-tailed bumble bee Bombus melanopygus.

It is feeding on the nectar of blossoms on our Ray Hartman ceanothus shrub.
