Seen Around Town

This apricot-colored valley carpenter bee was spotted buzzing around Shoreline Park on a recent Sunday by Mountain View resident Astrid Albaugh, who snapped its photo. She said it's the first such bee she's spotted in her nearly 30 years living in the area. "They are supposedly not seen that often," she said. "They are an inch long and the largest bees in California."
