Bumbling Bumblers

We have huge black bees here (Sonoran Carpenter Bees) which should have been named the Midnight Bumble Bee. They truly bumble along, bumping into one thing and then the next. People, who are not used to seeing them, freak out when one of these giant bees runs into them, but they seldom sting anyone. They were brought to Hawaii to help pollinate passion fruit and today I saw lots of them in this field of wild Aloe plants.

Below is yet another fragrant cluster of Plumeria flowers.
