Tiny chinooks

Wasps have made a nest under a rusty corrugated iron roof by our drive and are buzzing around like tiny black and yellow chinook helicopters, patiently queuing for air space before diving underneath for cover. It will be interesting to see how long the activity carries on for now that autumn has well and truly arrived. Just a few metres away and four or five years ago, I chopped through a completely unexpected wasp’s nest, deep in creepers and ivy, with nothing less than an electric cutter… it felt like an almighty explosion and I was definately quite lucky to get away with just a couple of stings!
