Carpenter (Copter) Bee Buzzing

This Giant Black Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa tenuiscapa) was seen checking the Indian Milkweed (Asclepias eriocarpa, a species of milkweed known by the common names woollypod milkweed, Indian milkweed, and kotolo) flowers.

 

Please watch it in Full HD video mode with audio speakers on to enjoy it completely. The background squeaks are the calls of Tailorbird in the area.
