With summer’s arrival it’s been a blessing to be able to open my window and listen to the bird song. Unfortunately for the first time yesterday this brought the inevitable zzzz zzzzzzzzzzzz zzzz: a curious incomer, a very large wasp.
I left my window open and having heard no zzzz for a while assumed the wasp was gone. I forgot all about it and went to bed.
Another unfortunate adjunct of summer for me is hayfever. Last night I awoke several times to blow my nose on a tissue from a box beside me on the window ledge.
When I got up this morning by the dawn light I saw the huge wasp sitting in the box beside my tissue! By sheer luck I had avoided an event that would have been painful for me and deadly to the wasp.
I put the wasp in the tissue box outside and the next time I looked it had gone.
