Wasp heaven

We sat outside yesterday afternoon with a cup of tea and Tim had a cream scone. There were no wasps unlike a few months ago . The numbers are very low.

After a while one wasp came to check out the raspberry jam, I decided it deserved a feed up . The video of the wasp in heaven is worth a look !

The only wasps to survive the winter are the queens who will hibernate and start a new colony in the spring. The males will all die .

Although through the summer months the wasp is cursed and swatted by picnic goers and cream tea eaters it is worth remembering that they are important part of the ecosystem.
