don't. move. rocks. in. nature.
no, I'm not talking about sacred spots. I'm talking about rocks on natural bodies of water and any rock at all that wasn't already moved by people.
it disturbs the ecosystem and can do a lot of damage. keep that in mind next time you're out on a hike, visiting a natural touristic spot, etc. just leave no trace.

The blue carpenter bee
Xylocopa caerulea, the blue carpenter bee, is a species of carpenter bee.
Species: Xylocopa caerulea; Fabricius, 1804
the blue carpenter bees can grow to 28 mm far larger then a honey bee who can grow to 17 mm.
These bees can be found in Southeast Asia, India, and Southern China, and they are known for being less aggressive and more affectionate than others of the bee species.
As opposed to honey bees, who build intricate hives containing thousands of worker bees, the blue carpenter bees live relatively solitary lives, building nests in trees.
Occasionally queen bees will share an entry hole to their nest so that they can have some company.
