Still to be seen, but looking rather weary now, this wasp was relaxing on a leaf in the sunshine.

You are braver than I - I stay away from these as much as possible. My neighbor just cut her ground ivy with the lawmower, and woke up a nest of ground hornets. She was hit about 15 times and had to go to emergency for treatment. I know they do a lot of good, but I wish they weren't so easily "irritated".
An incredibly detailed shot Carol. Never thought about them having those hairs on their bodies.
