Wasp's feeding.

By paulbroad  
Interestingly I've found that my Mango chutney trick attracts flies, but not wasps. So I tried a few smears of syrup - then it was wasps and no flies! Obviously preferences although I doubt the flies wanted to be too close to wasps!

80mm macro - no converter this time.

Seriously, if you have a nest, particularly in a restricted space, be careful. They will attack. I've cleared them in the past by wearing a boiler suite, industrial heat hood, goggles and gloves - then using a strong fly/wasp spray right into the nest entrance, which will be on the bottom. Then get out - quick!
