Kind of Cicada?
September 1, 2009
This bug appeared in my backyard for the first time this year. We’ve lived in the house for 6 years. My wife though bee family, I’m thinking cicada. Verdict?
This golden green-eyed male Valley Carpenter Bee differs significantly from his sexually dimorphic, black mate. The larger female Valley Carpenter Bee lives longer and visits flowers to gather pollen and nectar to feed her brood.
