[Drowning Wasp]

  1. Caught this poor wasp in our bird bath this morning - rescued him by picking him up with a blade from one of our palm trees.
    He shrugged himself off, did that cute number of cleaning his antennae and face, and flew off to wherever wasps fly off to :)


    As can be seen here, he was hanging on for dear life onto a blade of grass - I'm amazed he stayed afloat..


    Here he is all chipper and cleaning himself up.


    Cheers all
