This guy was huge! I don’t know what variety he (she?) is, but apparently he decided that the recent weather was not at all summerlike and escaped indoors. I found him in my makeshift proofing box over the weekend when I was about to proof bread. I should have put something recognizable in there for the picture for perspectives sake. I’d say he was about 2-3 inches from front legs to back.
Saved from drowning and spending a few minutes regaining his composure while drying out on his rescue stick. We have seen more of these black wasps (?) this year than ever before. I am curious about them. Need to seriously consider getting a good insect identification book. Reccomendations?
Nin can’t help but insert herself into every possible picture I take out in the yard. Screaming and whining at me the whole time because I am paying more attention to my camera and the bugs than her.
Do you think she knows it is her shadow?
