Bumblebee, Bombus terrestris

Tasmanian bumblebees are thought to have descended from as few as two individuals that hitched a ride on cargo from NZ. They’ve still managed to populate much of the island, testament to their success as a species and lack of local predators. This individual photographed near the Hobart rivulet.

This is a soundtrack to winter in Hobart, Tasmania. Reading in pools of sunlight, fungi-hunting in the rainforest, sitting and staring out the window. All tracks are recorded live in one take without overdubs, with a bass guitar and effects chain.
