There’s a male eastern carpenter bee (Xylocopa virginica) in that photo, but it’s really hard to see.

Here it is closer up in mid-flight guarding its nest in the deck railing.

Why should there be discord and strife among men? All must become united and coordinated in service to the world of humanity. 1
