I like this. I don't care for wasps in my own back garden (or, as they were last year, nesting in my window frames), but intellectually I appreciate their cleverness and beauty, which this poem and picture combination really captures.

Fear of wasps after upsetting a nest when I was 6 or 7 has never gone away. But yes, they are dilligent workers.

Sue, as long as those quarters aren't around my quarters all is fine. :)
I dug through my June bug collection, looks like you did too?

I love the nature theme of this, the play on "buzz," the photo. It's all great! (I especially love seeing the beginning of a new hive.)

So great to see some spring activity. We have a nest that comes back in the same place year after year.

I love that first line in the haiku.

No wasps out here yet. It won't be long though. The words are picture perfect.
