Carpenter Bee

Xylocopa confusa


A very large, fat, black bee with a yellow hairy thorax.


Adjacent to a small stream. Altitude 900m.


This bee spends no more than a second at each bloom, making it a very difficult subject to photograph. The bees tend to make a circuit of the blooms, best to observe, pick a bloom and wait for the bee to come around again.
