Large Bumble Bee on Blackcurrant flower.

I saw this bumble bee making its way through the flowers on the blackcurrant bush this afternoon.  

The size of the bee was so disproportionate to the flowers, it looked almost comical; as the bee landed on this flower and stopped flapping its wings, the end of the branch bent down with the extra weight!

I hope it managed to get a good feed, and most importantly, help to give me a good crop of black currants this year.
