Let us see your best photos of those large, hairy, jumbo jets of the bee family. Just bumblebees, not honey bees, carpenter bees, native bees; NO hover flies etc. The bee/bees must be outside, on flowers, leaves, buzzing around, or just doing what bumblebees do; NOT under studio lights. Check Wikipedia for information about bumblebees. SIZE DOES MATTER: See below!
