    Wasp? There were bumbles, bees and this specimen all competing for the rosemary flowers.

    Exactly, although, I do have a soft spot for the humble bumble.....

    and it looks like we have the same bloody herbs!

    A couple of weeks ago a bumblebee flew up my trouser-leg and got stuck. It stung (or possibly bit -- I'm told they don't sting) twice and I got these enormous red welts on my calf. I don't blame the bumble, but it's made me a little wary of them!

    Lesson learnt, wear tighter trousers ;) It's the wasp I am a bit weary of .
    This bumble might give you an idea of what bit hurt you though.

    Forgive me, but I couldn't help thinking of this;

    I think looser trousers are the way to go! Less conducive to bumble-panic. ;-)

    Rumor has it that it is a bumblebees ambition to get up someones trouser leg once in a lifetime. So you are lucky to have had that experience along with the extra heavy fluffy bumble. What would have been nasty, is a wasp.God forbid.
