Wasp and Hornet Photos

September 14, 2010

This red wasp was just peering over the top of this leaf on a bush at me fully aware that I was taking pictures of it. Its wings were injured making it accessible for me to get so close to it. Wasp head over petal.


I am allergic and I know that these wasps are generally mean but with its wings injured, he couldn't fly to get away from my camera lens. His head followed my movement when I moved around the bush for a different angle so I have no doubt that he knew I was there.

Paper wasps try to build a hive on my patio every year. Here I have some pictures of the queen building the hive; you can even see first egg! She was actually friendly and never tried to attack me.

This is more for a chuckle than anything. We are all so worried about the bees I wonder if it's not that they are becoming a bit gullible.

Today I had to "Hurry and bring the camera, Mom! You gotta check out this bug and take pictures of it", said my 6 year old daughter.

This yellow jacket stayed on my porch for at least an hour one day. He was so friendly that I was able to get multiple shots of him.


I thought he looked really pretty when he buzzed over and landed on one of my husband's young viola blossoms.

I was very surprised one day when a rather non-aggressive wasp landed on the viola plant that my husband has growing on our front porch. These wasps have been nesting in one side of our home.

The killer wasp is considered a beneficial insect in that it helps to control the cicada population thereby reducing the damage done to deciduous trees. Read on for an informative and original wasp monologue imagined by the author.
