Eastern Carpenter Bee

Xylocopa virginica


Has a mostly hairless black abdomen. The rest of the body, excluding its head and legs, is covered with light yellow hairs except for a round patch on its back.


This little fuzzy guy was found flopped on my deck near the garden when it was raining. At first I was kind of worried, but when the rain stopped, she flew away just fine.
