  1. Looks like a big one! Posted 5 months ago
    1. Yes, around 2cm or so if memory serves - much like our own big Bombus terrestris s.l.
      Being almost all black made it even more awesome-looking :o)

''Bombus terrestris'', the buff-tailed bumblebee or large earth bumblebee, is one of the most numerous bumblebee species in Europe. It is one of the main species used in greenhouse pollination, and so can be found in many countries and areas where it is not native, such as Tasmania.
