accidentally woke this tired wasp up while gardening. as someone who hates getting up in the morning i could really empathize and quickly put her back under a bunch of leaves. (after taking some pictures, my empathy has to compete with my curiosity)
Vespula vulgaris, Vespidae, foraging on Impatiens glandulifera, Balsaminaceae
This encounter was quite brief, and the main subject was so covered in pollen that I can’t be entirely sure about the ID, but I’m positive it was a Common wasp foraging on Himalayan Balsam. If anybody thinks otherwise, feel free to let me know and correct me!
