Buff tailed bumblebee queen on apple blossom. The queen is larger than the male and her bands of colour can be a darker yellow but bands can vary from dark to light in workers, usually with a buff tint. The tail colour is buff in queens yet in males and workers it is white, usually with a thin buff band at the base. This springtime image of the queen feeding, the pink & white of the apple blossom showcased with a background of rich green a popular image. Strange but true that in the warmer parts of the UK, fully active winter colonies of this species are regularly recorded, even when temperatures are close to freezing and there is snow on the ground!
