Regular readers will know how the Ranger has an uneasy respect for waspkind. At this time of the year it’s easy to forget our yellowjacketed friends, but don’t be fooled: they are sleeping, awaiting the summer.

I was entertained to find, whilst reading Imgur’s ‘Best pictures of 2010’ one wasp-related graphic which I decided not to use earlier this year as, well, it’s a bit profane. In fact, very profane. But I enjoyed it so much I thought that you could probably make the decision for yourself. So if you don’t like rude words, don’t click through. This is a wasp (NSFW)

Wasps are less easy to forget at this time of year when they have previously been found to crawl right inside your Christmas crackers in the loft, gradually reanimating over the course of Christmas day, and finally waking up fully as a finger is inserted into the remains of the cracker to extract the hat..
Nowadays any leftover crackers are shaken to check for buzzing…
That’s one monster wasp, remind me not to get him mad!
There are wasps this size in france, they call them frelons and they are so loud flying it sounds like a moped flying toward you. Very scary.
