Sorry, Dan, I can't help you... other than to say I took a couple of bursts of the same kind of bee yesterday.

Cheers,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Thanks John, you could be right, they look very similar. Guess I've only seen male carpenter bees before.

Tom take a look...hopefully you got some better shots than I did

Sorry, Dan. I can't help you, but the flowers are nice looking. I would give those beas a wide birth, they look like nasty buggers.

They look like carpenter bees to me, Dan. I have a lot of them boring into my front porch rails and the wood peckers love to dig them out and eat them!! Drat dem peckerwoods anyway%$#%^&&*(&&&!!! They are usually not aggressive, but if threatened they can sting multiple times.My oldest girl got one in her shirt about twenty years ago and it stung her twelve times before I could kill it. Had to rush her to the hospital as she was mildly ( Thank goodness only mildly) Allergic to the sting!!

Good photos Dan, the bee reminds me of the BOO BEE they land on a flower and if they see a bee inside they hollar Boo Bee.

(Sorry Pablo)
