Xylocopa violacea readily identified by its color. Carpenters bees are about 25 mm, glossy black all over, with sparse black hairs. Taken at Le Perreux sur Marne, Ile-de-France, France.
tonight was the first time i ever tried coloring somebody’s roots to hide their gray hairs!
i was really nervous!! ｡ㅇ｡(ノ｀д ´ノ)｡ㅇ｡ they had a lot of hair lol but despite that i ended up working efficiently and quickly and it turned out really great for a first time attempt! i guess im proud of myself hehe
