I was thrilled when I heard the sound of a little helicopter and spotted a Carpenter Bee buzzing through the garden.
They are huge, they are black with wonderful dark blue wings, they are fast and they are very shy. She enjoyed our indigofera and I rushed into the house to fetch the tele lens. When I returned I was very happy, that she was still dancing around the blossoms. Such an impressive beauty!
In the extra you can see her wonderful dark blue wings. :-))
