    (you didn’t use the word “embiggen”)

    Carpenter bees have been drilling holes in the sides of my wooden cabin in the Ozarks for years. The “damage” they do is minor, but I suppose it can accumulate. This year I’ve set out a bee nest for them to use. Maybe they even will.

    The damfino genus is huge. It is rivalled, possibly surpassed, only by the justa clade. Interesting how animals in different orders can be in the same genus.
