Paul Williams, Leif Richardson and I are working on species pages for each of the bumble bees of the eastern US for the Pollinator Partnership. We will be providing natural history information, colour patterns and digital images of each of the species and this resource will be available online in time for this summer. Currently between the three of us we are missing live shots from a few species (see below). If you have any pictures of these you’d like to provide for this project, we’d be greatly appreciative. Otherwise I fear I may have to quickly learn the art of posing pinned specimens on flowers!
