Yellow Bee

Male Carpenter bee (Xylocopinae) most of male are very cooperative, buzz around you and he will also not bite because sometimes female nest around.. male protect if any unknown comes buzzing around.. female live in social with his sisters and daughters.. and sometimes dangerous..if you crossed the limit. so I have to take this Buzzing bee from little distance but his buzz is so quick cannot get in proper frame and all the time he change the direction of buzz so 100% concentration on bee through camera is important thing for me atlast I was really happy when i see this image.. really happy.
