Scary!! No likely wasps! :/
I don't like them either, they pack a wallop!
That is a really pretty, clear picture, though....the colors are striking. Evil, but striking ;)
Mary, red wasps even LOOK evil, don't they? I've been stung a few times and have no desire to be again.
I just got stung by two of those 1 1/2 weeks ago. The swelling went half-way up my arm. Never had a reaction like that before. It took almost 3 days for the swelling to go down.
Oh Kris, how painful! One is bad enough, but to be stung by two! I think their sting is as bad as a scorpion's, and I've been told that their venom is very similar. I'm sorry your reaction was so bad.
Can't say I've ever seen a Red Wasp in person but it sure looks cool and menacing. Not my favorite insect but fascinating none the less.
I consider you lucky to have not seen one in person, Ida. They are distinctively red even in flight. That said, they are interesting to look at and study. A photo can't sting!
