I Ran Like A Coward!!!


Coexisting with Paper Wasps on Eighty Acres requires one to be alert at all times. Paper Wasps build their nests by gathering fiber from dead wood and mixing it with saliva to construct their papery homes. Once built, the queen lays one egg in each hexagonal cell and in a few weeks the new wasps hatch. I was lucky enough to capture this photo as the new bees emerged from their cells. With several wasps buzzing around my head and knowing the pain of a bee sting....like a coward..... I ran like hell!
