Caption: This image shows Bombus vosnesenskii, the yellow-faced bumblebee studied by University of Texas at Austin's Shalene Jha and University of California, Berkeley's Claire Kremen. The researchers found that the ground-nesting bumblebees are negatively impacted by impervious cover and will forage long distances for diverse patches of flowers.
