No Hornets were harmed in the making of this post!


This is a Red Hornet

Before anyone rants and raves it wasn’t sacrificed for this blog.

It was already expired and gathered for examination.







Rather impressive machines these hornets.

They are huge compared to a humble wasp;  and the sound they make is different too. They make this really low, lazy, evil-sounding buzz when they fly around.

If you ever wondered why it might smart a little if you get stung, take a look at this stinger!

Coleshed Safety Advice:

If you encounter an angry hornet in an enclosed space, RUN AWAY.




Man alive!

These guys even have spikes on their knees and hooks on their feet!
