Big Buzz

This bumblebee is the largest I've ever seen!  At least the size of an American Half Dollar--tip to tip.  We found him on Tygh Ridge Just south of the Columbia River.  He was so non-threatening, I almost wanted to pet him.  Almost.

Impressive bee, impressive thistle flower.

I agree with the first comment.

They're HUGE over here, too. And cuter than cute....and friendly, or confused. I hold my breath when they fly in my face and wait for them to figure out I am NOT a flower. :-/
