Bumblebee (Bombus pascuorum floralis = Bombus agrorum) male foraging Eupatorium flowers with hemp leaves (Eupatorium cannabinum) at the edge of a pond in a marsh, in autumn, in September, in Picardy - France. A small tachinid fly (Siphona geniculata) also stands on the inflorescence. Tachinids are endoparasitic insects of caterpillars used as crop aids in biological control of other insect pests.
