A Pair of Brown-belted Bumbles on the Thyme

Rare for me to get focus on two bees in a single pic. But this is a nice one of two brown-belted bumbles in the culinary thyme. It’s really hearty stuff and likes to wander around the garden. Seems to pop up in unanticipated places now and then. But it’s one that blooms for most of the season – and attracts pollinators of all kinds – especially in the late afternoon, from my observation. Can look a little ragged sometimes, but the bees love it.
