What I like to call the black fat now known as the black flap

Growing up  my brother and I use to call  the big black  and yellow carpenter bee  "black fat"  It is mostly black  and a fat bee.  Well it's that time of year for these bees to be all over the place and of course now being an adult I simply ignore them  and often try to snap pictures of them as I see them on flowers.


Well the other day Gavyn was here  and he came running in saying grandma  get it so I went out realizing that he was talking about the carpenter bee  or for me the "black fat"  so I told him oh hunny its just a black fat  it won't bother you  it's just flying around.  He started to laugh at the name  and now it is know as the "black flap"

  1. Debbie that is cute, I guess it depends on where you live as we called them yellow Jackets, even though I do not think that was what they were, some call them bumble bees!
