A Passionate Carpenter Bee
updated: Jun 26, 2014, 1:30 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

This one of the biggest Carpenter Bees I have ever seen and I think it is a female Xylocopa Californica. The bee itself is all black but appears to be wearing a hod die of pollen. A very efficient pollinator and obviously passionate about getting some nectar. Not great pics, but gives a idea of size.
