Garden visitors

In digging up the garden I've been having a few guilty pangs as I disturb a few residents. Mattocking away I found these chaps burrowed down in the soil. Fortunately they survived the ordeal. I still haven't identified the exact bumble bee species, but she was huge, about an inch and a half long. The other, it turns out, is a going to turn into an elephant hawk moth. I hope I get to see it after the metamorphosis.
