Walking around neighborhood

The carpenter bee's wings seems so
 small compared to its fat little body.
Yellow Trumpet Flowers
As I was out walking today, a couple huge, black carpenter bees caught my attention. How can something with a fat little body like theirs actually fly? The wings are going so fast, they can hardly be seen while in flight. I was able to catch a closeup of this on in flight as it took off from the bright yellow trumpet flowers.

Carpenter bee was covered in pollen when done.
