Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Carpenter Bee Nest

One day I was sitting on my front step waiting for someone to pick me up and I happened to notice a few carpenter bees buzzing flying into and around a hole in the trunk of the  mesquite tree in front of my apartment:

They were digging tunnels in the wood so they could lay their eggs and flying in and out to provision their nests!  It’s a little hard to see the tunnels they were excavating, but I’d never seen carpenter bees at work before and this photo always reminds me of how excited I was to see it for the first time.  I love carpenter bees!
