Carpenter Bee



A big yellow bee, about 20mm large, with green eyes, there were almost 6 of them in the same bush in a coastal area flying arround and stopping in the same place in the air for 3 seconds over and over again


Spotted at Pulau Lombok, Indonesia, at coastal area.


The most similar ID I found is the “Valley Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa varipuncta)”but it seems that just found in North America, not South East Asia
