Busy Polinators

Carpenter Bees are truly "Bumble" bees because of the way they are constantly bouncing off everything in their path, including people. They're called carpenter bees because they dig into wood (and plastic made to look like wood) to make their nests. They're a bit intimidating because they are HUGE, but gentle - I've never heard of anyone ever being stung by one. The one above is gathering nectar and pollen from a wild lilikoi (passionfruit) flower.
