The Eastern Carpenter Bee is easily confused with the American Bumble Bee.  While the bumble bee is covered covered in fuzzy hair, the carpenter bee is missing the fuzz from its abdomen.

I saw this raven land on the stump and was hoping to photograph it when it took off.  Luckily it didn’t sit there too long so I was ready when it took flight.

Mason Wasp

When I think of the color of bees and wasps, I think of yellows, oranges, and reds.  This little Mason Wasp is black and white with beautiful blue wings.  Sadly, it flew away before I could get a another photo showing more of the wing.  From what I’ve read, they mainly feed on nectar and caterpillars.
