Had a small discussion about the bumblebee in Facebook :mrgreen: Since I learnt a bit about them by translating those articles about the bumblebees last summer I looked this one up, and I think it is one of the most common here in Europe, Bombus terrestris - buff-tailed bumblebee or large earth bumblebee. Had a little exchange with Liis about them viewtopic.php?p=113079#p113079

Yes, it's going from winter (in the beginning of the week outside the city it was still around freezing point, they had to scratch car windows) to summer and 30° within 5 days! :faint:
