Excellent job with the photo! And our dialup internet users thank you for taking the time to downsize the photo file size so that they can view the photo.

Your bee looks like one of the bumblebees (Bombus), possibly Bombus bimaculatus.

Thank you for id'ing. Thought this information might be useful for this forum, although it's way beyond my understanding. I don't know if the information is accurate:
---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Sam Droege <sdroege@usgs.gov>

All:

A set of 5 presentation on the genera of bees of Eastern North America is available at:

http://www.slideshare.net/sdroege

The compressed slide shows are also available for downloading at:

ftp://ftpext.usgs.gov/pub/er/md/laurel/Droege/)

Feel free to link to these guides, embed them in web sites, or use them in talks wherever you please.

Admittedly, that was the best slide presentation I have ever seen on bees.

Where do you come up with all these goodies?

I'm on 3 listserrvs: alien plant working group, native plant working group, and NH birds. You don't have be a professional in these groups to take part. I'm not. The people on the list servvs usually are professionals from land conservation, government parts, university, state biologists, from all over the country. They are amazingly thoughtful and offer great expertise if you want it from a professional source. I sought information about knotweed removal and people on the list sent me all the methods they use. I'll post the sign-up information if you'd like. I just love so enjoy all this new information about wildlife that we can find now.

I am a member of one of those groups. Perhaps I should be paying more attention to what's being sent lately. For a while I was receiving one offer for employment and one notification of internship opportunities after the next and it became a turn off.

Employment and intern offers are still posted on them, but not annoyingly so. And, if we get one more inch of snow in southern NH, I'm going to have to speak to someone!

They backed off on the job and internship offerings? How long ago?

Snow is a swear word by me.
