A Bamboo Abode

Noticed this bee at work on a dead bamboo around noon.

Still at it!

Hold on, honey! Only the finishing touch is left!

There! Home Sweet Home!

Yesterday, when the backyard was cleaned, a dead bamboo
came off easily. I noticed that it had a hole and I did
wonder whether I'd deprived a wasp or a bee of its home.
Sure enough, I saw this bee hard at work drilling its new
abode today. I'm glad I have the photos but regret not
keeping track of the time that it took to complete it.

Kanak, there is always something interesting in the garden to watch. Natures little movie world. In my garden are similiar ones called carpenter bees.

To be able to actually see them at work is wonderful. I'll be posting some more about creatures on my bamboo plants.
