Sonoran carpenter bee, is a carpenter bee found in the eastern Pacific islands.[1] Males are golden brown and lack stingers; females are black and larger than the males and considered shy. In tropical climates, females will lay eggs all year, with interruptions due to cold weather. After collecting pollen and preparing tunneled chambers out of wood, a single female will deposit eggs on pollen balls within the chamber and seal it. The eggs will hatch two to three days later, with larvae maturing in two weeks, and prepupal and pupal stages lasting 3–4 weeks. New adults will begin buzzing a week later and flying in two to three more weeks.

Beautiful photo! Love the yellow! All the colors go so well together. This is just another part of nature that we would miss if it weren't for talented people like yourself to capture its beauty and share with the rest of us. Thanks:)
