Dead bee

I found a dead bee in the ivy this morning. I think it's a carpenter bee. I saw it (or one just like it) a few days ago enjoying the borage flowers.

It looks just like a bumblebee excepts it's all black.

A side view.

You can see its proboscis in this view.

Think of all the nectar it drank in its life, spreading pollen, making honey. Now its apian life is done. Rest in peace, bee.
