the busyness of bees

we have what i think is a golden rain tree out back. the blossoms have recently made their appearance and it has drawn the bees to it in droves. finally, i get to see and hear the bees close to home.

i've been told this is a bumble bee and the yellow on its abdomen is where they collect pollen. pollen baskets. lovely.

i cannot seem to id this species, though. maybe carpenter.
