Photo du Jour - Black Bumblebee


A violet carpenter bee enjoying some fragrant jasmine flowers.

This is an impressive looking black bumblebee that lumbers clumsily around the garden. It has beautiful, iridescent, violet colored wings and is about three times the size of a regular bumblebee!
Don't be afraid though. It may look scary, but this is a very non-aggressive bee. Pin It
