Peter, this species is common in Crimea, but inserted to the Red Book of Ukraine and it is under regional protection. Thank you!

Yes, Genie, the colors in the photo are real. The carpenter bee wings shine bright blue at a certain angle. Here is another photo of this interesting insect

Thank you! Thank you, Bernard!
