The Carpenter Bee

The common name "carpenter bee" derives from their nesting behavior; nearly all species burrow into hard plant material such as dead wood or bamboo.

Carpenter bees have short mouthparts and are important pollinators on some open-faced or shallow flowers.

This one was flying around Kadoorie Farm late in the summer of 2018
