Ginger-tailed Carder Bee

This queen Ginger-tailed or Common Carder Bee Bombus pascourum was feeding on nectar of Red Clover this afternoon at the Shannon Airport Lagoon.  These are a fairly common bumblebee and they will be out and about until late October or sometimes early November of every year.
