Often confused with bumble bees, the Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa sp.) is a very common and often destructive insect that burrows into wood including the wood adorning homes. This photo was taken as the bee was flying away, using a very long lens, in the Georgia mountains near Rising Fawn.

I am happily living and enjoying life in the beautiful city of Cuenca, Ecuador, located over 8,000 feet up in the Andes Mountains of South America. Here, I can pursue my passion that is outdoor photography. My wife and I came here from Houston, Texas, where I worked as an information technology manager. I was also a marine biologist for 10 years, so my passion for all things in nature is, well, natural!

    I only wish he was flying towards me! Still, I thought maybe the detail would help make the shot for me.
