I have written on this blog before about wasps. I wrote a post called Australian Wasps: Big, Bad and Painful?
If you read it, you’ll know that back in England I detested wasps. But in the article, I explain that here they don’t seem to trouble me at all. Well, a year later the situation is still the same.
In a country like Australia which is supposedly jampacked with deadly creatures, you’d at least expect the wasps to be a bigger pain here than in most other places.
Last time I had had an encounter with a Potter Wasp and this time my home was intruded by a Mud-dauber wasp. Well, at least that’s what I think happened, to be truthful they both look pretty similar. Anyway, this time I did a video of my encounter and I’ve decided to post it up here for you today.
Well, it is YouTube Friday…
There you have it. Another friendly, kind and gentle wasp from Australia. I never thought I’d use those sort of words to describe any type of wasp. Incredible.
The Mud-dauber wasp: Australian bad thing? Not at all! I quite like them.
Okay, I promise to turn my attentions to matters a little more serious next week, but right now it’s taking me a little while to get back into it. I’m still feeling a little bit Christmassy and New Year’s Eve-ie.
