The Mother of All Hangovers

This cheeky lager lout had to be rescued from my beer where he had fallen in and would have drowned. I am pleased to report that after much preening and washing (giving me the chance to take some snaps) it flaggered (flew/staggered geddit?) away.

I can see that I need to half drown insects so that I can take such photographs. Respect! These are wonderful.

"Along with the German wasp and two species of Polistes (all invasive species), the common wasp is considered a pest species in New Zealand, as it competes with endemic species for food, such as insects and honeydew. In some South Island beech forests it is thought that densities of wasps are higher than anywhere else in the world. It is calculated that the total weight of common wasps in these places may exceed that of all birds.

Research indicates the wasps use odor to identify and attack rival wasps from other colonies, and nest odor frequently changes. V. vulgaris wasps have been observed aggressively competing with honey bees for the honeydew secreted by the scale insect Ultracoelostoma brittini in New Zealand's South Island black beech forests" (from wikipedia, "common wasp")

interesting species, wasps. kinda like the lions of the insects...
