I have been having a bit of a Hornet situation...
I have seen one or two in the front yard, and twice I found one trapped in our screened in porch.
Here's a better shot, after I captured it:
Don't worry, he's fine. I took him to the back of the yard & safely released it by a flowering tree.
Hubby & Annie were not pleased with me bringing it in to the house, but I wanted them to see it & help me take a picture. The stinger was huge. I imagine this guy could really hurt given the chance.
I think it's some kind of Ground Giant Wasp. I don't know...I tried to research, but actually started to get more confused.
I wonder, with this crazy weather we have had, are you all seeing rather bizarre insects too? Are you noticing things changing and, well, rather odd?
another day pretty much like the previous days
