Wasps have a bit of problem on the PR front. “Not very popular” or “generally unwelcome at picnics” is how they seem to be viewed.
I think this is a bit of an injustice – OK so they can be vicious killers of smaller beasts and they have a nasty sting – but, if the truth be told, none of us are perfect.
So, here in all its black and yellow glory is a Potter Wasp. I took this picture a few weeks ago on Magnetic Island.
