Hornet - Vespa crabro Ė Frelon or GuÍpe frelon or Guichard....

By SvetAriadne
The Hornet Who Almost Kicked Ariadne's Nest........Tongue
One warm day this beast we call the Hornet got stuck in our shower....perhaps the bright light lured it in....its broad wings whirlwind blew one million gusts per looking at hornet's large size about 3.5cm long & boldly marked....we assumed our uninvited guest was a Queen Frelon itself....therefore we treated her husband gently caught her into an empty glass & I took the Queen Frelon outside ....set her free on the flower took her about 5 minutes to gather her strength & senses.....then she gave me her last look & disappeared in the garden.....Smile...I was lucky to take a lot of close up photos...unfortunately I'm able to share only 1 for now....Smile.....

A wonderful capture Svetlana,but I find your copyright mark a distraction. Maybe less could be more. Just a thought.

An excellent detailed close-up, Svetlana, and how kind you were to the hornet, we have some very vicious ones here in Crete Sad
