In clover, a young bumblebee at work. An interesting detail in this photo includes an indication of the incredible wing speed of the bumblebee. The shutter speed was set to 1/1000 of a second. The wings are still a blurred. Wings beat typically at 600 beats per second, however, whilst hovering to land, the wing speed must increase from the normal inflight rate. Note the proboscis extending from the head. It is normally tucked under the head inflight, and is extended for feeding.
