Just leveled some dirt and planted some bermuda grass. Put sprinklers on, and these were my first visitors.

Thanks Jim and Roger. I was trying not to upset him. It was hard to focus on the wasp and not the few blades of grass.

If the two of us had been together when you finished taking the photo you would of notice I was no longer close to you or that THING.

Roger, I would be more afraid of the bulls, you had photos of recently. But then, it is all in what we are used to.

Fred, they can be when aroused, but in most cases they will retreat.

Jerry, While in Michigan I also had an opportunity for a wasp S&R, (Shoot and Run), picture. I was able to get in close but when the flash went off so did I ! There was a big nest of them and they were not happy with me! :-) Jim
