Insects

Hornet

The most exciting sighting today was the appearance of a Hornet on the insect table. A superb insect inches from me as I sketched, I was struck by the rich colours and of course its size. It dwarfed the Common Wasps around it and they kept a respectful distance as it dominated the feeding area.
