Yellow-faced Bumble Bee

Being both allergic to bee venom, Erika and I usually give bees and wasps a wide berth. This Yellow-faced Bumble Bee seemed intent on feeding on a Dahlia near the Washington Capitol on 19 August 2021. This species is the most common bee along most of the West Coast, from British Columbia to Baja California. It can be found in agricultural and urban areas and is important for plant pollination, including greenhouse tomatoes.
