Update from the Lake: Hornets' Nest

It's a beautiful thing, but has got to go.
And, AFAIK, it's gone by now. At this stage, it reminds me of a delicately spun, upside-down dreidel. I think you can just barely see a few of the little suckers up near the top: the black variety, not the more common (in our area) yellowjacket type.

It's awesome, but I was glad you decided it had to go. No guilt. Even zoologist Vincent Dethier, who studied the nests built inside and outside of his summer bungalow, could decide to eliminate one in a particularly risky place (The Ecology of a Summer House).

That sounds like an interesting book. Wish I could "look inside" but may order it anyway.
