You are viewing a small female bee entering a hollow hydrangea shrub stem where she has built a nest. Hydrangea are common shrubs used in garden landscaping but few gardeners know that bees use the stems for nest sites. The bee is a small carpenter bee in the genus Ceratina. In the stem there are likely several developing larva feeding on regurgitated nectar and/or pollen from the mother. The video was taken on City Island in the Bronx, New York.
