European Hornet

I came across this European Hornet (Vespa crabo) recently. This is a large introduced species that I don't see very often.

I find the eusocial insects incredibly fascinating, a fascination that largely started after reading "The Superorganism", cowritten by E. O. Wilson. This is a book I think anyone really interested in biology and natural history should check out.
