Splendid frame sir!
Such a small bee and it's pollen basket in such a clarity in flight.
Amazing... Congrats for the well deserved honor!

A beautiful moth that lives on fruit juices! It pierces citrus fruits for the nectar and has become a pest in that way in orchard areas.

I am always cautious about this.I do not like any slips in scientific names.
Hence I have vented out my feelings by this apology.
Thanks again

Dear Krishnamurthy
A Beautiful nice shot it is!
I have typed as Xylocopa sp Subfamily Xylocopinae Family Apidae. But unfortunately in my android phone it has misspelt all and also above 60 I should not depend on my mind alone when giving name,family etc without proper verification.. I request a confirmation before posting can solve such issues in a scientific forum.
@Mr Mark Ridgeway I sincerely apologise and indeed regret a lot for the error and I shall be careful in future.Regards

It is wonderful!
It has become truly rare due to habitat loss. It is a stem borer and clearing forests,other lands for developmental activities,use of pesticides have all a great impact on these beetles.
Yes the beetles emerge shortly after the monsoon rains and the beetles do have an important job of reproduction.I think like other stem borers these beetle larva lives more !
Beautiful spotting and very fine frame for the species.
