Bees on Capri

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by johnaalex, Sep 19, 2008.

  1. Had a walk around the "Giardini di Augusto" this morning and although the bees were well outnumbered by camera wielding tourists I managed to get the following with my D300 and Sigma 150mm 2.8.

    Are those carpenter bees? They look the same as those I saw in the Maldives save for those being black. Nice shots though!

    Cheers!
     
  3. What is a carpenter bee? One that builds its own hive :biggrin:

    Sorry I do not know what type of bee they are, but I'm glad you like the photos :smile:

    This was one of the giant carpenter bees in the Maldives, which is quite similar, especiallty the eyes have a similar pattern, which was what made me ask :)
