(Buff- or White-)Tailed Bumblebee

When trying to identify what kind of insect it was exactly that I managed to photograph here, it seems it's not so easy after all to distinguish between buff-tailed and white-tailed bumblebees without looking at their respective queens. I hope I'm not that far off and it's something else entirely

It's the pollinator time of the year.
K-1 and DFA 100 macro and HD DA 1.4 TC



The smaller the flower, the smaller the pollinator.
