A Bee-yooo-tiful Day!

Carpenter bees make nests by tunneling into wood, vibrating their bodies as they rasp their mandibles against the wood, each nest having a single entrance which may have many adjacent tunnels. The entrance often is a perfectly circular hole on the underside of a beam or tree limb.
I took this shot of a carpenter bee in flight (not an easy task ....whew!) out on my back deck today.
