That evening I was trying to take photos of birds collecting building material for their nest from this Crown Flower (Calotropis gigantea) silk. I noticed this Blue Carpenter bee (Xylocopa violacea) hovering around the flowers. Sun was Harsh and I didn’t have any macro lens around. So I fixed 36 mm Kenko extension tube to my Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM on Canon EOS 5D mark II and tried to shoot closeup shots of this Carpenter bee.
Then suddenly I saw a small black bee came and annoyed the carpenter bee so much that it just scooted away.
This reminded me the story of David & Goliath.

Perhaps the small Bee was on a suicide mission. Thats why Carpenter Bee ran away.
I have similar shots… on my Flickr account
