Violet Carpenter Bee

We often see these large bees flying about the yard and joke that they are large enough to give small children rides. They always seem to look a bit lost as they fly around appearing to be looking for their home. Today I finally got up close and captured a couple of shots.

This is a Violet Carpenter Bee. Look at those gorgeous wings!


Oh wait, he flew away.

Let’s try this again.
