Bugs of Summer

One of the things we have to look out for during summer in the south are these guys.  Stir up a nest of them and you will get stung.  While they are not as painful as the Cow Killer sting (see below), you might easily wind up with several stings from all the wasps on the same nest.  Best to use one of those wasp and hornet sprays from 20 feet away, and be ready to run anyway.

I have been stung by a wasp. Ouch! I am allergic to bee stings. Gorgeous close up of the little guy.
