I captured this image of one of the fabulous, huge, black bumblebees that visit my French beans every day. You can tell how big it is by using the bean flower as a scale.
Their wings are black but have these fantastic lights of purples and metallic when the sun shines on them. I think they look like a work of art, it is worth all the work in the garden if it attracts beauty like this.
Those are carpenter bees. They like to bore into wood to make their nests. I hope you live in a concrete house!
