Each day now I fill up the bird bath (did I tell you about that, by the way ?!?!?) to the tune of 1.5 litres, and each day every time I approach there are wasps drinking. No flies, bees or anything other, just wasps.
Wondering whether there is a nest close by :eek:, or maybe wasps are more prone to dehydration than other insects :shrug:.
Anyway, I approach with care .......

Haven't found any wasp nest but am sure there's at least one nearby. Never seen so many wasps as this year - put it down to the heat. Anyway, it seems to have been a very good year for them.
I think I've had two kinds: a normal-sized wasp and a smaller type.

Time certainly does fly, Willpar - coming up for 7 years now.
