Notes Bombus californicus queen visiting Iris siberica. Photos 39569 to 39574 are the same individual. This queen has been visiting our garden daily since May 23, 2013. She appears to be doing a trap line of six or seven groups of sage and Iris siberica that we have. She does not seem to be interested in the other flowers we have such as rhododendrons and true geraniums.
