This dirty great big wasp dropped down in front of me as I was gazing out of the window the other day. Must be a queen I guess and the equal spacing of the twin yellow marks on the thorax my book tells me are typical of the German wasp Vespula germanica. I didn't mention the war. Fifty years today since Adolf did the only decent thing, probably the only decent thing he did.
