    Default Type of bee

    Just thought that I would see if anyone agrees with me. I think the bee is a carpenter bee and not a bumble bee as has been suggested. Carpenter bees tend to live in wood, hence the trees....

    Any opinions?

    The reason people are saying bumble bee is because that's what it's called on the official ATT site:

    I also think it is a Carpenter Bee. I spent some time researching it. It doesn't look like any of the bumble bees I've found. The closest bee I've found is the Carpenter Bee.

    If you read through this site that ChasinAMe provided, it tells you that the Carpenter Bee is a cousin to the BumbleBee.
    ...and Chp 4 pg 26 tells us that "each of them mourned a relative or mate who had been touched by the dust and transformed into a shining stone --another jewel for the Blight-Spreader's collection.
    The only token I found was SQUAT!!!
