Welcoming a wasp to my picnic!

In July I had a rather tasty picnic, it gave me the chance to observe some rather cool behaviour by scavenging wasp! Early in the summer season, wasps are on the hunt for food, anything meaty for their grub sisters. That might be an unfortunate insect, or a scrap of chicken from my picnic!

The drum stick was up down on the plate, for just a moment and this opportunist wasp decided to tuck in! I watched with fascination as it gnawed off an impressive chunk of the meat and then the small insect flew off with it between its legs.

No my friend didn’t continue to eat the chicken, but yes it was left for other wasps to help themselves!

My 2015

My 2015 was a good year, it was also a very busy one!

Choosing a photograph per month to blog was both enjoyable and a challenge. It’s something I’ll be carrying through into 2016.

There were many other photographs that I loved to, so here are a few highlights .

My Photograph from December

December’s unseasonable mild weather has left a few insects confused. They’re up and about all over the place.

I got my own surprise on Christmas day, a wasp searching for a sheltered spot in amongst some bracket fungus on an old tree stump.

This is my last of my photographs of the month for 2015, so I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy new year and a wonderfully wild 2016!
