A hornet’s Nest

Have you ever stirred up a hornet’s nest by saying something innocently? Happens here on Viriliy as it does in other places, right?

However, I was quite stunned to see a hornets nest for the first time, this is the Vespa affinis  or the lesser banded hornet’s nest . These hornets are common in tropical and subtropical Asia.  These nests are built high up on the trees or houses. They look so strong and sturdy and have many entrances .

The tear shaped/drop shaped nest are about a feet in length. The hornets diet consists mainly of nectar from flowers,tree sap and fruits but they also have a heavy protein diet of bees and meat of  freshly dead insects.

    • This is the first and only time I saw a hornets nest. I thought at that time of taking the picture that it was a birds nest, but the people there alerted me that it was dangerous to get too close.
