more from the house of hornets

We paid another visit to the Wiffill outhouse of hornet horror to see how things are getting on. As is obvious queen hornets are surprisingly tolerant, but I think this is as close as we are going to get without risking a sting in the tail. Canine habit of snapping at things that buzz may be ill advised in this situation.

This amazing site (German but in English) will tell you all you ever wanted to know about Vespa crabro

Hi Spot,
Thanks for the info on Queen Anne's Lace, wild carrot, and hemlock. I googled around a bit, and I'm more confused than ever now. I'm going to check that plant out again next week and record the details more carefullly. I'll post the results.
Pat, pat, pat, Laura
