Oh my goodness--he's so handsome! I have lots of the females in my garden, hope to see a male or two as well!

I love these golden bees they are so pretty with the green eyes. Perhaps they are Irish with red hair and green eyes?

It is like Indian carpenter bee, Xylocopa pubescens. Here male is fully yellow whereas female has yellow pubescence on the thorax. Contrary to this, in Xylocopa fenestrate, both male and female are jet black.

I live in northern Sacramento (ELverta Ca) I have had one of these male carpenter bees return every year for the last 4 years ... I am glad it does not sting... people say this is too far north but it can't be course he is here...
