If the Soviets Liked Apple Pie
The second photo is of a Thread-waisted Wasp feeding on a daisy in my front yard. It might look scary to someone taught that all wsaps are scary, even deadly! But I know otherwise and I have spent hours watching them feeding on various flowers.
The third photo is of a Yellow Jacket building its nest. It was too busy to pay attention to me, so I watched for ten or fifteen minutes, admiring its engineering ability. If I get stung once in a great while watching things like this it is well worth it. By the way, I get stung about once every few years. No big deal. I see wonders!
