11 December 1971, Belgium
Solidarity – Insects: Wasp / Polistes gallicus
design: Marc Séverin / JMalvaux

This is a similar wasp ( this exact one seems not to occur in the UK ) to the one which stung me about a month ago. Scary dotted eyes and frowning face, but their real threat is their needle/sting which is not depicted.

Wasps seem a bit drowsy in autumn, as their main source of food, liquid produced by their larva is short – that’s why they come to your beer or juice on pub benches – I learnt many things through a painful experience!
