Found this beautiful carpenter bee pillaging my flower garden. I’m pretty sure it’s a valley carpenter bee, but thought you might like the pics…

Hi David,
You are correct in your identification of this female Valley Carpenter Bee.  We currently have several gathering nectar from our wisteria, and when the sweet peas bloom, they gather nectar from them as well.  We have yet to see a golden male this year.
