[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Carpenter bees (the genus Xylocopa in the subfamily Xylocopinae) are large bees distributed worldwide. Some 500 species of carpenter bees are in the 31 sub-genera. Their common name is because nearly all species build their nests in burrows in dead wood, bamboo, or structural timbers. Carpenter bees are large, sturdy, shiny, black-colored bees, some species having yellow markings on their heads. Carpenter bees may be mistaken for bumblebees. Wonder what the little white spider was thinking when he saw such a big black thing next to him. lol
