can you please identify this bug?
We found this bug in our garden near the beach in southern California. Would you be able to identify it for us? Thanks for your help!

Hi Lindsey,
What a wonderful “up close and personal” image of a Male Valley Carpenter Bee you have sent our way. Female Valley Carptenter Bees are a rich black color.
