What is this bee?! I think this is a bee! And I have been trying to find out its name! It looked very interesting! I hope it is not in the danger of colony collapsing. And I hope it’s native in Southern California.
Oh, I just found out it is native to California. I was hoping it is the Franklin’s bumblebee. But I guess I don’t have the luck. Franklin’s bumblebees have not been sighted for a really long time. This bee is Bombus californicus.
Tree! With weird little dried fruit/seed thingy! Cool-looking! Leaves were all fallen off and then there are just the little round things left on the branches.
