Male Carpenter Bee
Xylocopa tabaniformis androleuca

Xylocopa tabaniformis androleuca
I don't even remember taking this shot at Red Butte Garden but I'm glad I did. I only took one picture
but it's a good one. What amazing eyes this little creature has. You
can read up on Carpenter Bees at the
Utah State Extension Service.
Bugguide identified this to species. You can see what the
female looks like on my other page here.  © Carol Davis, 6-19-2014
