Xylocopa varipuncta, lavender (and ant)

These silly-big black bumblebees have had a thing for our lavender for years.

When they land, they pull the whole head over so that it nearly touches the ground.

In the springtime, the males - which are fuzzy yellow, guard a length of hedge in the back yard.
