Wasp swimming.

Swimming in the birds’ water. Yeah, I did rescue it. I’ll add some photos later.


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. Sooner you than me, Christine — I’m terrified of them! I remember once eating in an outdoor restaurant in Slovenia, where we were attending a conference, and watching a woman casually brushing a wasp out of her cleavage. Unbelievable! If it’d been me, I’d have been about 10 feet up in the air by then …

  2. I dislike wasps, will kill them guiltlessly when they buzz persistently during a picnic, yet have irked myself by rescuing them, as well, when the poor things are in difficult circumstances like yours here.

  3. I’m not as kind as you Christine, those wasps are killing our bees! It is good that there are still some kind souls about like you Christine. I must say I keep out of the wasps way, if possible.

      1. Actually, the funniest part was when I staggered into the chemist, clutching my backside — they all rushed up to me thinking, apparently, that I had been attacked (which, of course, I had — but not in the way they thought). When I gasped out “wasp sting!” they all started rushing around in circles, flinging antihistamines, pain killers and cortisone cream at me …

      2. Lived in an apartment once which didn’t have screens on the bedroom window. It was a hot night and I left it open. Woke up to pain in my arm. By the light of the moon, I saw something dark, shook my arm and jumped out of bed. It was a wasp. Had to get medical help soon afterwards.


      3. Oh, that’s horrible! I had a bee crawl up my pants leg last year and I had a huge red patch for a week, at least. I don’t wear floppy pants to the clothesline any more when the clover or daisies are flowering. 😀
