Artist's Description

In Arkansas USA, we call these Yellow Jackets. They’re like WASPS, just striped. And can kill!…. There was an abandoned gas station, that has a coin operated state newspaper box. I used to (emphasis USED TO) buy my Sunday paper there. I NEVER noticed THIS hanging 4 ft above it. I’m deathly afraid of and allergic to these kinds of bugs(bees, hornets etc.). I mean, if I get stung, I’m toast. Since it was usually early am when I went there, I never noticed these, until I happened by after daybreak. I’m cautious to the point of paranoid, and during summertime, carefully scope out an area for these. I saw one fly by me, looked up and nearly fainted! Then I looked behind me to the rafters, there were 5 more. Then 4 more to my right. I ran SCREAMING from there….. Home delivery was called in that day…….I told a friend. He went by a few nights later as they were dormant, and ERADICATED them.. He said it took 5 cans of spray(he’s allergic, too, but brave!). He said BEHIND the birds nest (you can see them in photo) was another yellow jacket nest he said was 13" long!! Probably 500 in all lived here! Been there for years! Taken July 2012 with a SanyoVPC-E2100 on Super Zoom!! Straight from the camera…I had to work up enough courage to came later back and photo these wicked little critters!
