Watch on wasps

Lord, clear my misted sight that I
May hence view Thy divinity,
Some sparks whereof thou up dost hasp*
Within this little downy wasp

From “Edward Taylor’s “Upon a wasp chilled with cold”.

Social, scrumper of orchards, plague of al fresco dining, woodcrafters, general pollinators, raider of spiders’ larders and pest controllers. 

Yes, all except the Queens will be dead by the end of summer and so the UKs Big Wasp Survey starts August 25th – September 8thClick to Register
