It was really sunny today so I went outside and there was this bumblebee on a wall and it was justsitting there. So I caught it. I have no intent on keeping it but while it have it I decided to snap a few pictures. It is really hard to get this bee to sit still. 

 

I'm also wondering if it's a queen. Bumblebees don't come out this early usually.

It's around 20mm - 25mm.

The bee's been released. Way to nuts to even observe it for an hour :lol:

Venturing a guess, I'd say Bombus frigidus.
