Buzzing around

Well, my summer is complete... it seems to be an annual thing that I stick my nose into at least one yellow jacket nest, usually digging it up. This time I was moving a woodpile. Fortunately, I've learned to run like hell at the first sting, so damage is limited anymore. The first time it happened in this garden, they were all over me, and under my clothes, by the time I took off. Posted by Picasa

It doesn't take much for yellow-jackets to be induced to sting. They are just downright ornery little creatures.

They're pretty much the only hymenopteran that I won't tolerate because of their nasty tempers.
