A Wasp Investigates

Recommended Posts

Common Wasp - Vespula vulgaris, it's the first one I've managed to photograph this year, not sure what it was looking for on the log though

Thanks Clicker.

Well, I didn't know that, although it definitely wasn't doing what the wasp in the video was doing, maybe it was just checking out the quality of the wood first. I did know that they built their nests underground, because it surprised me the first time I saw them doing this quite a number of years ago.
