The bamboo is in it's full glory. The blooms attract just about everything including almost the full range of stinging critters. Bees, wasp, hornets. It's not an area I want to push my way through right now, but the bamboo surrounds the north-east corner of the retreat. What a spot to photograph these insects.
Can you see what is lurking there to catch the unwary? Yet this is also a dangerous place for her. There are hunting wasps frequenting the area, and this is one of their special treats to feed their emerging grubs.
