I can’t seem to find what kind of is this. Please help me. I want to share how beautiful this bug is. ?
I live in the coldest city in a tropical county. It’s near summer but the city is still affected by cool northeast winds (amihan season), about 15 to 25 degrees Celsius typical temperature in a day.
We are quite confident that this is a male Carpenter Bee, but we have not had any luck locating an image from the Philippines to verify our suspicion. Here is a North American male Carpenter Bee for comparison. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to assist with a matching photo.
