Male Carpenter Bee Photos
by 'Peter O'

Aussie Bee Homepage > New Native Bee Photos > Carpenter Bees

'Peter O' kindly contributed the following stunning photographs to the Aussie Bee website. They show the male of the Great Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa), captured in mid flight!

The Great Carpenter Bees are the largest bees in Australia. The females look quite different with a furry yellow thorax and a shiny black abdomen. See photographs of female Great Carpenter Bees here.
