Helping the bees.

This is a White-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus licorum) which I photographed at the weekend.This species of bee is widespread throughout the UK, however populations are believed to be declining. It emerges early in the spring and can be seen feeding on flowers right through to the autumn. It can be found in gardens, farmland, woodland edges, hedgerows and heathland. 
But some bees aren't doing as well, visit the link below for information about photographing and joining in a survey to help our monitor bee population changes.
