Buff-tailed Bumble Bee (Bombus terrestris)

I’m pretty sure this is Bombus terrestris, not one of the other similar species. At the time, there was something which made the identification certain, but I can’t remember at all what that was.
Regardless, this is one of my favourite photos because you can see the whole body of the bee, with all the hairs on it and get the detail of the legs.
