Wasps don’t care about you, all they want is a long line of fat ants to munch on and the occasional wasp versus wasp battle royal so they can cannibalize one of their buddies. As long as you’re not poking them, or getting into their flight path they’ll pretty much leave you alone. Which is why it’s always a good time to leave sugar under park benches and picnic tables. Not saying people should do that, just that it’d be funny.
Technical Stuff: I took a lot of shots of this little dude, some of them fairly close. This was a couple of years ago, so I can’t remember any of the settings… besides, I mostly make that shit up anyway. But I know I was using my Kodak C533 pocket digital.
It takes a lot to provoke a wasp into stinging you, they’re kind of like Canadians in that way… it takes a lot to motivate us into violence, but we’ll cut you. Oh yeah, we’ll fucking cut you. The name of the song is “Ride Like Hell”, and it’s by Big Sugar from their 1994 release ‘Five Hundred Pounds’.
