I was once the only person on a package holiday to Iceland and I guess that this wasp must be feeling rather the same way. It had the trap to itself after another chilly night. One of the only headlines this morning to vie in popularity with all the stuff about Rebekah Brooks is on the snow which has fallen in the northern Pennines. Pity the darling buds of May.
Wasps are very beautifully patterned. They got to the hazchem/health warning colour combination of yellow and black first. They suffer terribly for their reputation as stingers, but they will never attack a human being deliberately and for all but those with medical conditions, the sting is no big deal anyway. They also build the most beautiful nests from which architects have taken inspiration and even learned technical lessons. I saw this one politely and safely on its way.
