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!
