Bee Breath

This is Xylocopa violacea, the Carpenter Bee, breathing its first Spring breath, on the 2nd of February 2013.

My reference book, Collins Complete Mediterranean Wildlife Photoguide (Harper and Collins, London, 2000) says they are active April-September.

Is this early breath another sign of us all warming up - climate change, bee-style?
