Going home to rest

The end of a perfect day

Another beautiful day comes to an end. There was a fabulous sunset and we continue to enjoy a proper summer. The insect life is just incredible, absolutely buzzing. Unfortunately that does include wasps. I know wasps have a role in the natural order of things but that doesn’t include climbing in my beer while I’m drinking it or sharing my al fresco meal.

    Beautiful photo. I agree …wasps are unwelcome dinner guests/drinking companions. Not just unwelcome; uninvited!

      Thank you. The fine summer has meant an explosion in the wasp population. It seems I can’t sit outside for a minute with anything to eat or drink without being surrounded by them.

        I have just read that wasps imprint their food sources so it seems they have you marked 🙂

        That made me smile and explains a lot of what’s been happening lately. I feel I am being followed as soon as I step outside.

        It’s absolutely true! You are being followed. Or the beer is. And if you are wearing bright coloured clothing the’ following’ will be even more dedicated.

    I agree with you. Wasps have their place in the world, but I prefer it to be far away from me!
